Interested in the health innovative fellowship programReply
22 May 2019
The fellowships form part of our new Health Innovation Platform (HIP), through which we will champion outstanding ideas, tools and techniques which we believe have the potential to transform health systems in both low resource settings and in the U.K. We believe that investing in innovation has the potential to revolutionise healthcare through the development of effective solutions to global health challenges.
Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Health Education England, each fellow has been awarded £3,000 to travel to their LMIC partner institution to develop, test and implement their innovation.
Through a process of internal shortlisting and external review by our distinguished steering group, the following individuals have been selected for the fellowship programme:
We look forward to providing further updates in the coming months!
I am delighted to be awarded a Health Innovation Platform Fellowship and excited to take our innovation forward. With the support of THET I am able to bring some of my volunteering experience and innovation back to the NHS. I would like to thank THET for recognising the project and its potential. I would also like to thank the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Health Education England for funding this fellowship. For without such funding, innovations and overseas partnerships like this would not be possible.
