Supporting the development of the next generation of public health leaders in Africa.
SEE ALL PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS
Helped fellows from Africa develop the knowledge, insight and skills to work within their own countries to formulate and implement evidence-based policy and to serve as the next generation of leaders. It built skills in leadership, policy analysis and formulation, as well as global health diplomacy.
This fellowship was targeted at individuals from Africa with a background in public health senior management, who may not have extensive policy development and implementation experience. The fellowship benefited those who wish to enhance their policy-making and leadership skills in order to effect change. Fellows learned from the course work, case studies and their peer and mentor relationships. Mentorship was a vital part of the programme. Calling on the unique expertise and experience in the Centre on Global Health Security and the Global Health Centre (GHC) at the Graduate Institute, mentorship from those with experience of working at the highest levels of national and international public health policy development and global health diplomacy provided the essential platform for developing future leaders.
"Our Centre will support fellows to explore and discover the interconnectedness of global health and the complexities of global health diplomacy in Geneva, linking the global with the national level and spanning across different sectors.”
"We are very pleased that the fellows from our first cohort have been able to contribute to public health development in their own countries while being mentored through the fellowship programme."
“It is my hope that today’s fellows will be tomorrow’s mentors, taking this fellowship programme to the scale needed to achieve continent-wide impact."
“We are very proud of this fellowship partnership with Chatham House and the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute, to whom we give our full support to operate freely in terms of program implementation and selection of the fellows.
