The African Paediatric Fellowship Programme (APFP) is the leading training programme in Africa dedicated to building the paediatric workforce.

We provide training and clinical experience in top-ranking African hospitals     and universities to African paediatric doctors and nurses.

Why does Africa need APFP?

There is a critical shortage of paediatricians, paediatric sub-specialists, and paediatric nurses in Africa.

The lack of qualified paediatric doctors and nurses in Africa is largely due to a shortage of training opportunities, which causes them to seek training outside of their home countries  and remain abroad to establish their medical practice, a phenomenon known as brain drain.  

 

Our impact

 

APFP has trained 147 child-health specialists from 13 countries across Africa.

 
 

Fellows return to their home countries, where through their leadership and expertise, they develop new protocols, influence policy change, conduct research, share knowledge, and—most importantly—radically improve health outcomes for children.
