École des hautes études en santé publique, (known in English as “EHESP School of Public Health”), with a campus in both Rennes and St. Denis (MPH program website) is designed to form the next generation of French and international professionals in public health. It is a ‘grande ecole.’

The École des Hautes Études en Santé Publique (EHESP School of Public Health) was signed into being January 1, 2008, changing its name from the ENSP (École Nationale de la Santé Publique).

The French government set up the school in 1945 as a means of developing a management personnel in the public sector who were able to apply the major social security laws passed in 1945 and construct the new health and welfare administrative infrastructure after the Liberation.
