Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme 2020-2022 for Clinicians in Sub-Saharan Africa

Deadline: March 29, 2020

Applications are open for the Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme 2020-2022. The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme, an initiative of the IAS Educational Fund, is aimed at contributing to improving the quality of HIV service delivery in resource-limited settings by providing two-year fellowships to clinicians from sub-Saharan Africa, who will spend one year in Europe and one year in Africa at clinical institutions.

The programme will offer in-depth training for clinicians committed to careers in HIV clinical service delivery in sub-Saharan Africa with the aim of strengthening access to high-quality services for sub-Saharan Africa populations, with a client-centred service delivery approach.

Many African countries face an unmet need in the training of medical practitioners who want to become specialized in HIV. HIV medicine sub-specialization is not attractive for many young healthcare professionals, which is in sharp contrast to the need for such specialized personnel and leadership in the hardest-hit countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

Fellowship Details

The fellowship will provide expert training in HIV service delivery for people living with HIV and AIDS, from diagnosis to treatment and including co-morbidities. It will place particular emphasis on appropriate care for different patient groups, including key populations.

It is anticipated that the fellowship will help build capacity, foster clinical research and develop long-term sustainable partnerships. The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme will recruit the “high-flying” healthcare professionals to spend time in HIV-specialized centres and be given the opportunity to develop their clinical and research skills and take a postgraduate diploma in HIV.


  • Applicants should have a terminal research degree as a medical doctor (or equivalent)
  • Minimum of two years’ clinical experience
  • Currently working in sub-Saharan Africa
  • Commitment to become a specialist in HIV
  • English, French or Portuguese speaking.
