The Sustainable Development for HIV Health (SD4H) 2020-21 Fellowship Program at the School of Public Health and Community Development, Maseno University is open for applications. SD4H aims to recruit an existing rst-year or beginning PhD student interested in an academic research career at the intersection between sustainable development (e.g. economics, agriculture, animal science, environmental science, etc.) and global public health with a focus on improving HIV care, treatment and prevention outcomes. Letter of admission to the PhD program is a prerequisite for acceptance into the Fellowship.

The SD4H Program will leverage on existing and emerging partnerships to help students develop innovative, multi-sectoral sustainable food security and poverty alleviation interventions with the goal of improving health outcomes among HIV-a ected families and preventing new infections. After the completion of the training program, graduates will be expected to design, lead, implement and scale innovative, transdisciplinary interventions within Kenya, with an aim of improving HIV prevention and treatment outcomes by targeting food insecurity and poverty, some of the root drivers of poor HIV outcomes.

The SD4H Fellowship provides PhD students with outstanding transdisciplinary education, mentorship and training in innovative research designed to improve HIV health outcomes. SD4H students will receive training in clinical and HIV research, research methods, and in the development sciences (agriculture and food security, sustainable development, and economics).
