Fellowship grants for local capacity building

NNHF grants four educational fellowships per year to healthcare professionals from developing, emerging and transition countries. Our fellowships aim at capacity building by improving specialist knowledge in haemophilia care. Fellows receive training over three to six months at internationally recognised research and treatment centres. The ultimate goal of this programme is to transfer expertise to their home countries and to benefit other local experts in the future.

Who do we support?

Typical candidates come from all disciplines needed in multidisciplinary care centres for haemophilia and allied bleeding disorders. Haematologists, paediatricians, physiotherapists, psychologists, surgeons, orthopaedists, nurses and dentists to name a few.

The applicant should prove a strong interest in pursuing a career in the area of haemophilia and allied bleeding disorders. Prior experience in the field can be an advantage. This goes together with a clear idea of what needs the training should fulfil and how this will serve in the centre or hospital upon return. Accordingly, the training schedule needs to match with the objectives and has to correspond with the given time frame.

Who decides?

The NNHF Council is the decision making body.  We will let applicants know the decision in writing.
