What Is a Fellow?

Our fellows are local national highly trained public health professionals who support corporate philanthropic strategies and programs in their placement agency.


Fellowships are typically two years long, and the fellows are placed in agencies in their home countries. We recruit, on-board and supervise them and provide them with significant professional development opportunities, including the following:

    • Individual mentoring to create a professional development plan

    • Professional development funds to pursue personal and professional interests

    • Skill-building workshops
    • Opportunity to attend domestic and international conferences and meetings

I have realized that the more we grow our competency skills across wider domains, the more effective we become in solving grass root health problems.
