  • With non governmental staff in their own capacity and government departments (Payment to the institution’s account , not individuals) up to the equivalent of US $10,000 and with institutions using double signatory bank accounts up to US $ 25,000. The following conditions must be satisfied:

    • Competition has been demonstrated and documented in a note for the record

    • There is no research involving Human beings

    • Funds are available as per RAMS in the same product and the deliverables are produced outside WHO premises

    • A timetable of deliverables linked to the budget breakdown on the same form as for local costs is attached


  • APWs are not to be used for “Staff” kind of duties, as no insurance cover exists under APWs (does not create employer/employee relations)

  • APWs should not be used to government officials for work that falls within their normal responsibilities, as this might constitute salary subsidy , which is against WHO policy

  • Advances are limited to 20%, and based on clear necessity , demonstrated and documented by the budget time-table which must be attached to the APW.


  • A WHO fellowship, as a significant component of human resources development, encompasses a range of specially tailored training modalities of determined duration for individuals and groups in the fulfillment of specific learning objectives, corresponding to approved health and health-related plans, policies, and priorities, and aiming at relevant impact in the context of national capacity building. Such training may be of short or long duration and may take place in an appropriate training institution or the field inside or outside the fellow's home country.


  • The application for and the award of a fellowship constitute a joint undertaking by WHO, the host country, the fellow and the government; thus:

    • WHO, in agreement with the government and the fellow, establishes appropriate plans for study, makes the necessary arrangements with countries and training institutions, and provides financial assistance

    • the host country (in cases of study abroad), agrees to provide the course of study prescribed for the fellow;

    • services of the fellow are placed at the disposal of the national health administration on return to the home country;

    • the government, as specified on the application form, gives its assurance that it will make full use of the knowledge and experience gained by the fellow, and that the status, seniority, salary, pension and similar rights of the fellow will not be adversely affected by the fellow's absence from duty in the home country.

Fellowships will be awarded to
Fellowships Will be awarded to:

  • who are, or who will be, engaged in medical or health work in their national health organization (national health administration; health service of other governmental administration, local authorities, research and educational institutions), and whose applications are supported by their national health administration (ministry of health or equivalent authority);

  • for whom the national health administration is prepared to certify that, if a fellowship is granted, full use will be made of the fellow's services in the field covered by the fellowship;

  • who have not less than two years' experience in the subject they wish to study (except for undergraduate studies);

  • who have exhausted the opportunities available in their own countries for studying that subject;

  • who submit subjects for study which are directly connected with the country's own health programmes;

Fellowships will be awarded to1
Fellowships Will be awarded to:

  • who undertake in writing to continue in, or place their services at the disposal of, a national health administration immediately after their fellowship for specified minimum periods in relation to the duration of the fellowship granted as follows:

    • one year of service for fellowships of less than six months;

    • two years of service for fellowships of six months to two years;

    • three years of service for fellowships of more than two years.

  • who are in good health and, normally, are not over 55 years of age if the retiring age is 60 or above, nor over 50 if the retiring age is below 60

Fellowships will be awarded to2
Fellowships Will be awarded to:

  • who are able to speak, read and write a language which can be used for the proposed studies.

    • Astatement from a reliable source confirming the proficiency of applicants in the languages needed for their studies is an essential requirement.


  • When fellowships are granted for long-term studies the government concerned is asked to undertake that, if for any reason WHO cannot continue the fellowships in subsequent years, it will make financial provision for the students to complete their studies.

  • It may be necessary to provide official proof of language proficiency as determined by the regional office of study.


  • It should be the aim of regional offices to have received all applications at least six months in advance of the proposed starting date

  • Applications must be made on the WHO Fellowship Application Form (form WHO 52)


  • The regional director, based upon the recommendation of the fellowship officer, may reject an application if:

    • (a) the proposed fellowship is not justified in terms of the study programme;

    • (b) the qualifications of the candidate, technical background and knowledge of the language of study will not permit full benefit to be drawn from the fellowship;

    • (c) the candidate's health is questionable; or

    • (d) the application should not be accepted or should be postponed for other reasons.


  • Changes in a study programme after it has been established, even if the award has not yet been issued, are undesirable primarily because of the difficulties which they cause to the countries and institutions of study.

  • Regional offices of origin should keep the regional office(s) for the region (or regions) of study informed of any approaches made to them for changes in programme, extensions, etc.; and

  • fellows should be asked to address all correspondence concerning changes in their programme, etc. to the regional office for the region of study.


  • After placement has been arranged and funds have been obligated, the regional fellowships officer prepares a Letter of Award.

  • The Letter of Award, is the only certificate relating to the studies issued by WHO

  • The Letter of Award indicates how the fellow is to obtain tickets for authorized travel.


  • Fellows are required to make their own arrangements for hotel accommodation.

  • They are responsible for paying their own hotel bills, including cancellation fees, whether or not the cancellation is due to circumstances beyond their control

  • Fellows will receive their termination allowance from their Region of Origin upon return home and only after submitting their termination report.
