Malaria Modelling Fellowship 2024 for Nigerian public health professionals |Fully Funded

The Malaria Modelling Fellowship is currently accepting applications from Nigerian public health professionals.

Malaria Modelling Fellowship (MMF) is an initiative to build the mathematical modelling capacity of public health professionals in Nigeria. The Fellowship will expose participants to a comprehensive curriculum that includes core modelling content, in-depth knowledge of malaria epidemiology including transmission dynamics, and adjunct modules crucial to enhancing their careers and equipping them with in-demand modelling competence. Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Fellowship is a collaborative effort between Corona Management Systems (CMS), National Malaria Elimination Programme (NMEP), Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC), and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The fellowship is aimed at:

  • Increasing the number of doctoral and post-doctoral-level trained mathematical modelers with malaria expertise based at Nigerian institutions
  • Increasing the capacity of the National Malaria Elimination Program (NMEP) on modelling approaches as a tool that can support strategic planning and evaluation.
  • Increasing the capacity of the National Malaria Elimination Program (NMEP) on modelling approaches as a tool that can support strategic planning and evaluation

The fellowship is anticipated to take ten months to complete at an advanced level. The fellowship provides three levels of competency with a total of 625 notional hours: beginner (310 hours), intermediate (180 hours), and advanced (135 hours).
