WHO Fellowship programme: Call for nominations


We have been training doctors and other health professionals under
the WHO Fellowship programme. During the biennium 2006-2007, about
550 health professionals were awarded WHO Fellowship in prestigious
institutions within the country and in foreign countries such as
Thailand and Australia.

2. Building up on the experience of the last two biennium i.e. 2004-
2005 and 2006-2007, we propose to send more number of health
professionals, nurses, radiologist, laboratory technicians and para-
medical staff under the aforesaid fellowships programme, to WHO
Collaborating Centres in India for courses in various specialities as
enclosed at Annexure - I.

3. There shall also be slots in foreign institutions indicated in the
Annexure - II.

4. Kindly send nominations of interested officers especially those in
the field of public health. It is our experience that the applicants
are generally from big cities. We would like to afford equal
opportunities to those who have been serving in rural areas or sub-
divisional / district hospitals and have first hand experience of
public health issues. Similarly adequate representation should be
given to female officers and officers belonging to SC/ST category.

5. Efforts should be made to utilize the additional skills acquired
by fellows undergoing WHO sponsored training in their day to day
functions to improve the health services in the country.

6. The last date for submission of forms is 10.02.2008. Necessary
direction may please be given to the concerned supervisory /
controlling authorities so that the applications are forwarded in
time. In case of selection, the applicants should be relieved as per
the requirements of the course.

7. Copies of application form are also available on our web site –

With regards,
Yours sincerely,
