HSP’s Health Security Futures Fellowship for Yemen kicked-off in January 2020 with two-day intensive workshops in the cities of Ibb and Sana’a, Yemen. The twelve new Fellows, six each in Ibb and in Sana’a, are undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in science in Yemen. Led by two local expert mentors in each city, the events explored topics in health security, such as bioterrorism, international governance frameworks, dual-use concepts, infectious disease, and culture of responsibility. The fellows will now participate in monthly modules to explore these topics in-depth. Monthly virtual lectures will be augmented by group discussions and assignments hosted through HSP’s virtual learning platform.
