Funding Opportunity Description: CDC’s Collaboration with Academia to Strengthen Public Health Workforce Capacity announces two supplemental funding opportunities. These funding opportunities will be awarded under Part B- Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs) and Part C- Fellowships of the umbrella cooperative agreement. The Africa Health Workforce Project WIP seeks to advance the public health workforce infrastructure and build workforce capacity in Kenya and Zambia. The Allan Rosenfield Fellowship program supplement seeks to provide expanded international training experiences for fellows currently placed in various international locations. Allan Rosenfield Fellowship The Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellowship Program provides training opportunities in global public health for recent graduates of ASPPH member CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health at the master’s and doctoral levels. The purpose of the fellowship program is to enhance training and provide applied learning experiences to graduates of ASPPH member schools and programs of public health with an interest in global health, HIV/AIDS, and global health security. The training offered through this program expands the global health workforce and provides fellows an opportunity to gain practical, first-hand experience on the front lines of global public health. This supplemental funding opportunity will support an expansion of the scope of fellow activities. These activities include supporting additional training requirements, the provision of technical assistance, and additional travel and related costs. The Africa Health Work Force Project The Africa Health Workforce Project (AHWP) has been operational in Kenya since 2002. Work has focused on building information systems, supporting interoperability of existing systems, and supporting the development of the nursing workforce. Funds are being provided for the development of a web-based open source platform to support the registration and retention of records of health professionals in country, expand catchment to include pharmacy, dieticians, radiographers, and public health officers, host a nurses and midwives Congress from 17 country teams, award mini-grants to nursing and midwife country teams, and support a professional development library.
