Afya Bora Fellowship in Global Health Leadership 2017 – 2018

Afya Bora Fellowship in Global Health Leadership 2017/18 (Funded)

Deadline: December 1, 2016

The Afya Bora Fellowship in Global Health Leadership works to fill an identified gap in training for African and U.S. health professionals. This innovative 12-month fellowship will prepare African and U.S. health professionals to lead and manage major health programs in African countries. The Afya Bora Consortium Fellowship program includes a robust monitoring and evaluation component that serves to provide real-time feedback for quality improvement.

The Afya Bora monitoring and evaluation is led by I TECH (International Training and Education Center for Health). During the recruitment and selection process, data are collected using an applicant tracking system, recruitment progress notes, and interviews with key program staff. Once the fellowship has begun, Fellows provide feedback on all training modules and embedded evaluators supplement these data with objective observations.
