Applications call for Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity in South Africa Based at Tekano Leadership Development Opportunity for 2022. Are you passionate about health equity and social justice? Are you a changemaker and eager to contribute to change in your community and society at large? Are you keen to learning and working with others to achieve that change? This may be a leadership development opportunity for you!

The Tekano Leadership Development Fellowship Programme is based on the belief that an inclusive, equitable, economically productive and healthy society comes from action that addresses the unequal distribution of resources and opportunities. Equally, it challenges racism, classism, xenophobia, sexism and heteronormativity. Tekano is part of a global network of similar initiatives in South East Asia, Australia, Ireland, the United States, the United Kingdom and here in South Africa.


All fellows will receive a stipend for their attendance at module. Additional financial support will be availed for Fellow’s social change initiative. The value of the stipend is reviewed annually. Successful fellows will be notified in their letter of offer, what the value of stipend is for 2022.
