The Open Society Foundations’ Access to Essential Medicines Initiative seeks motivated candidates for its new Access to Medicines 2012-2013 fellowship program.
This newly created and competitive Fellowship Program aims to build a cadre of motivated leaders, activists, lawyers, and health care professionals in Eastern Europe and Central Asia who have the knowledge and leadership abilities to help build a vocal access to medicines movement and propel and mobilize others for increased access to medicines advocacy.
Up to five fellows will be selected in the summer of 2012 for a fellowship period of 18 months. During the fellowship, fellows will remain in their home organizations and be expected to devote a minimum of five hours per week to the fellowship, including work on an individual project. The fellowship will include extensive virtual learning opportunities and three in-person meetings–all focused on developing expertise on technical and political access to medicines issues, as well as advocacy and leadership skills. A small honorarium will be offered to the fellows.
For further information on responsibilities, expectations, qualifications, and the application process, please refer to the fellowship announcements and the application form.
