The University of Nairobi HIV Capacity Building Fellowship funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be offering a 2 year fellowship course.
To transition Kenya’s HIV Program to local organizations, it is critical to increase their HIV/AIDS program management capacity. As part of this initiative, the University of Nairobi (UoN) in collaboration with the University of Washington (UW) and Management Science for Health(MSH) aim to support the Kenyan National HIV response by an on-the job training
fellowship program for individuals interested in Program Management, Health Economics and Health Informatics. These are merit based programs whose aim is to build capacity for leadership and management in public and private health sectors.
Fellows will be selected based on their potential for commitment to health service provision in the public or private sectors. Upon completion of the fellowship, they will receive a fellowship certificate award of the University of Nairobi.
Selected fellows will undergo a 2-year full time non-degree competency based training program at the University of Nairobi and selected host institutions. This will be an exciting opportunity for fellows to benefit from professional on-the-job enrichment through a taught component and attachments in public and private health related institutions in the country. Fellows will further have the opportunity to undertake a funded project designed to improve the efficiency of the Participating Local Partners(PLPs) . During the training, fellows will receive a reasonable monthly stipend to meet their expenses.
