What: WHO, in partnership with Sabin’s Boost Community, is offering a fellowship program for national and sub-national immunisation staff to support them as they plan and implement activities for the recovery and strengthening of their countries’ immunisation programmes.
When: Starting Wednesday, May 11, 2022, this cohort will participate in a comprehensive program over the course of six months that involves a learning engagement series, developing a strategic plan and receiving 1:1 mentoring support by immunisation experts from the conceptual stage of a project idea through implementation.
Why Participate in this Fellowship?
- Develop Your Skills and Become An Advocate & Leader: The fellowship will begin with two months of weekly mandatory live engagements led by WHO staff and immunisation experts around topics relating to rebuilding routine immunisation, including catch-up vaccination, integration and life course immunisation. During these sessions, fellows will interact with experts and peers to increase their skills and knowledge in these critical areas.
- Craft An Implementation Plan: Throughout the live engagement series, fellows will develop, revise and submit a COVID-19 recovery strategic plan.
- Receive Individualized Mentoring: Participants with strong plans will be considered for a mentorship program to work 1:1 with experts in the field to further develop and implement their strategies and potentially publish their case studies. Final deliverables for the fellowship will be due December 1, 2022.
- Interact with an Incredible Cohort: Fellows will join and learn from a global cohort of passionate immunisation professionals who face similar obstacles and will have the opportunity to work through those challenges together.
Language Requirements:This fellowship will be available in English and French.
Application and Deadlines: Please fill out this brief application no later than Friday, May 6.
