International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) has
announced a call for applications for bursaries to build, improve and advance
palliative care in sub-Saharan Africa.
The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund’s Palliative Care Initiative has funded these bursaries as part of its commitment to helping scale up the number of healthcare workers qualified to deliver palliative care in sub-Saharan Africa and we are grateful to IAHPC for agreeing to run the scheme.
Individuals living and working in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe are eligible to apply.
Bursaries will be awarded in two categories:
Postgraduate qualification courses in palliative care. Courses need to be in institutions which are government accredited and academically affiliated and must be postgraduate level leading to a certified and government recognised formal degree (i.e. Distance Learning Diplomas, MSc/MPhil).
Research courses on basic research and methodology, including study design, statistical tools, statistical analysis and applicability, writing grant applications for research and preparing a paper for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Applications must be received three (3) months in advance of the course starting date. Preference will be given to individuals applying for courses based in Africa. Applicants may only apply for one of the two bursaries. To learn more about the criteria, and for a description of the bursaries and how to apply, click here
