The 2017 Health Security Stewards Fellowship is jointly organized by Health Security Partners (HSP), the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI), and the Indonesian One Health University Network (INDOHUN). This fellowship educates and mentors university faculty to provide health security training as part of medical, veterinary, public health, and life sciences curriculum, as well as through workshops and seminars to engage the wider community of academic and government stakeholders.
Specifically, Fellows who complete this program will be able to build relevant health security topics into curricula, including:
- International frameworks such as the World Health Organization (WHO) International Health Regulations (IHR), the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS), Biological & Toxins Weapons Convention (BTWC), Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and others;
- Emerging issues and solutions such as Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), using a One Health approach to tackle emerging zoonotic infections, responding to public health emergencies of international concern (PHEIC), the importance of health systems strengthening, Food safety and security, and Gender and health security;
- Issues in Biological Safety and Security including Dual use research of concern, Codes of responsibility, and Bioethics; and
- Needs for evidence-based policies, national and international collaboration, science diplomacy and many others.
The Fellowship begins with an intensive weeklong in-person training institute, scheduled to take place in Indonesia (dates TBD). The training will be followed by a year of mentoring via HSP’s online platform, as Fellows develop and rollout relevant curricula, workshop and seminars. A group of subject matter experts and thought leaders from the United States, Indonesia and regional South East Asia, as well as Indonesian alumni (2015 Fellows), will serve as trainers and mentors for this program.
