Working Group

The Afya Bora Fellowship is overseen by a Working Group consisting of representatives from the schools of medicine, nursing, and public health in the eight Consortium universities. The Working Group constantly monitors, evaluates, and revises the elements of the Fellowship, depending on input from the Fellows and faculty, as well as evaluations conducted by our independent M & E contractor, I TECH (International Training and Education Consortium for Health).
