About the Award: The Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House seeks to help leaders around the world reach well-informed decisions that improve global health security. It does so by conducting independent research and analysis and facilitating dialogue between the international affairs and public health communities. We are now looking for fellows for the next cohort of the Global Health Leaders Fellowship. We would love to hear from you if you think this could be you.
This is an outstanding opportunity to expand your professional and personal horizons and develop the knowledge and insight to effect change in your region. It is a practical exploration of public health across Africa and South Asia that builds the skills in leadership and in policy analysis and formulation that are meaningful for successful leadership in public health.
The fellowship is available to Africans who have a background in mid-level or senior public health management. We are looking for fellows who want to strengthen their public health leadership skills and knowledge in order to effect real and lasting change.
Eligibility: Candidates must be in a fully paid position in public health, in either a private or public institution in Africa or South Asia, that permits a month’s absence for the foundation course training and time for the development of the project during the year. The program will run from March 2020 to March 2021. Financial support is available for the implementation of fieldwork.
Number of Awardees: Not specified
Value of Scholarship: A hallmark of the fellowship is its mix of intensive orientation, interaction with leaders in public health and high-level remote mentoring and coaching. This is provided by leading experts at the Chatham House Centre on Global Health Security and the Leadership Academy of the African Union. The major requirement of the program is that fellows complete an independent leadership project, under virtual mentoring, while maintaining their jobs in their home countries. Fellows will be expected to undertake a project in one of the following areas:
- Universal Health Coverage (UHC)
- Healthy populations
- International Health Regulation (IHR),
Duration of Award: 12 months
