Applications are open for the WHO/AFRO Fellowship Program on Public Health Emergencies in Africa 2023. The World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa (WHO AFRO) invites interested and eligible candidates to submit applications for a fellowship programme on improving the management of public health emergencies in Africa under the COVID-19 Incident Management Support Team (IMST).
Through a three-month fellowship programme, WHO AFRO seeks to support 15 aspirational Master’s degree students, PhD fellows, and emergency public health managers and leaders in Africa in acquiring advanced skills and competencies for strategizing, managing and leading health programmes that will positively transform future public health emergency response on the continent.
The fellowship programme seeks to bridge the emergency public health management and research-to-policy gaps and produce well-equipped, versatile managers and leaders as required by the WHO Emergency Response Framework and the International Health Regulations (2005) for emergency response. Additionally, it seeks to navigate the complex environment of public health practice to achieve and maintain a positive impact on health, politics, negotiation, partnerships and health diplomacy.
The fellowship will adopt a hybrid approach, combining face-to-face engagements with technology-based activities in line with WHO’s Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) flagship programme, which aims to reinforce and scale up the quality and scope of public health emergency management in Africa over the next five years.
A total of 15 fellowships will be awarded to:
