The Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care was established on 1 August 2009 to replace the School of Public Health and the Department of Community and Family Medicine, with the mission of improving health of populations locally, nationally and internationally. The school is the first institution in Hong Kong to provide comprehensive education, training, consultation, and research in public health and primary care. The inclusion of primary care reflects the importance placed internationally on developing primary care as the basis for health service delivery and the School of Public Health and Primary Care will focus on developing research and teaching not only in Hong Kong but also mainland andin the mainland and the region.
The school has been working with VICOSYS for the development and maintenance of its official website since 2012.
The team has used Joomla, an open source content management system, to build the website. The system is suitable for managing a trilingual website with a lot of contents, including academic programmes, researches, activities, etc.
The design of the website is inline with the calligraphy on the school logo and the contents are well organized.
Intranet and student areas have been setup for online services and internal information.
