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

It is open to Africans working in Africa who have a background in public health sector management and who possess leadership potential.

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 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 Leadership Academy of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The major requirement is that fellows complete a relevant independent project, under virtual mentoring, while maintaining their jobs in their home countries.

Fellows are expected to undertake a project in one of the following areas:

  • Global health security
  • Universal health coverage.
  • Healthy populations
