HIV Programs Management Fellowships

The National HIV/AIDS Program in Kenya has made tremendous strides in the provision of high quality HIV prevention, care and treatment services.

The increased resources and rapid expansion of HIV and other health services has created a high demand for collaboration with the University of Washington (UW) through the support of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established the HIV Programs Management Fellowship (HPM Fellowship).

The purpose of the HPM fellowship program is to build the capacity of public health professional who can provide evidence-based and effective public health leadership and management in the public and private health sectors.

The Fellowship targets mid to senior level public professionals in government and private sector.

Fellows will be selected on their potential for leadership and commitment to public health services in the public or private sector.

The HPM Fellowships will be awarded in three areas of specialization (Tracks):

    Fellows will undergo a 2-year full time non-degree competency based training program that will include professional enrichment through attachments in public and private health organizations/departments across the country, didactic, and web-based learning.
