Applications are open for Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme: Experts in HIV service delivery. The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme, an initiative of the IAS Educational Fund, is aimed at contributing to improving the quality of HIV service delivery in resource-limited settings by providing two-year fellowships to clinicians from sub-Saharan Africa, who will spend one year in Europe and one year in Africa at clinical institutions. The programme will offer in-depth training for clinicians committed to careers in HIV clinical service delivery in sub-Saharan Africa with the aim of strengthening access to high-quality services for sub-Saharan Africa populations, with a client-centred service delivery approach.
The fellowship will provide expert training in HIV service delivery for people living with HIV and AIDS, from diagnosis to treatment and including co-morbidities. It will place particular emphasis on appropriate care for different patient groups, including key populations.
It is anticipated that the fellowship will help build capacity, foster clinical research and develop long-term sustainable partnerships. The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme will recruit the “high-flying” healthcare professionals to spend time in HIV-specialized centres and be given the opportunity to develop their clinical and research skills and take a postgraduate diploma in HIV.
Fellows will receive a living allowance for the duration for the Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme; applicants should ensure they are financially able to enrol in the 2-year programme before accepting the fellowship.

|Type of Opportunity||Scholarships and Fellowships|
