Following the successful Public Health Leaders Fellowship pilot of three West African fellows in 2016/17, the Centre on Global Health Security is pleased to team up with the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute, Geneva for a new cohort of African Public Health Leadership fellows.

The fellowship will develop the skills in leadership, policy analysis and formulation of successful applicants, who will benefit from the networking and mentoring opportunities in London, Geneva and their respective countries. Fellows will each develop and produce a project as part of the fellowship programme.

The fellowship provides fellows with an opportunity to:

Hone their leadership skills.
Improve their ability to assess public health in their own country.
Strengthen their capacity to develop, implement and evaluate public health initiatives.
Build networks across relevant sectors.
A hallmark of the fellowship is its mix of intensive orientation, interaction with African leaders in public health and high-level remote mentoring. The mentoring is provided by leading experts at the Chatham House Centre on Global Health Security in London and at the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute in Geneva. The major requirement is that fellows complete a relevant independent 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:

Communicable diseases, including emerging infections and antimicrobial resistance.
International Health Regulations.
Universal Health Coverage.
The role of private industry in public health.
One Health.
Planetary health.
Climate change and health.
Sustainable Development Goals.
Non-communicable diseases and their risk factors, including obesity and smoking.
