IAS Educational Fund Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme 2019

The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme, an initiative of the IAS Educational Fund,  aims at contributing to improving the quality of HIV service delivery in resource-limited settings by providing two-year fellowships to five clinicians from sub-Saharan Africa

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.
