FHTS is one of the best organizations in India which is using unique evidence-based research technologies and interventions. FHTS is a part of many national projects and is having collaboration with ICMR.
Virtual internship program from FHTS, New Delhi is one of the best platforms which has helped public health students in improving speaking skills, presenting skills, and writing skills. I got an exposure to be a part of this prestigious organization that helped me to learn more about data analysis, and policies and recommendations adopted by different countries to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
