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.
Utilize This Offer
Many African countries face an unmet need in the training of medical practitioners who want to become specialized in HIV. HIV medicine sub-specialization is not attractive for many young healthcare professionals, which is in sharp contrast to the need for such specialized personnel and leadership in the hardest-hit countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
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.
Applications for the 2021-2023 round of fellowships are now open. Clinicians working in sub-Saharan Africa committed to becoming HIV specialists with at least two years of clinical experience are invited to apply until 7 March at 23.59 CET.
Applications are available in English, French and Portuguese.
