  • One Health;
  • Planetary health;
  • Climate change and health;
  • Sustainable Development Goals;
  • Non-communicable diseases and their risk factors, including obesity and smoking.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The fellowship is available to Africans, working in Africa, who have a background in mid-level or senior public health management and who want to strengthen their public health leadership skills and knowledge in order to effect real and lasting change.
  • Candidates must be in a fully paid position in public health, in either a private or public institution in Africa, that permits a month’s absence for the foundation course training and time for the development of the project during the year of the fellowship.
