CPhO Global Health Fellows Programme
CPhO Global Health Fellows
Sixteen pharmacists volunteering as part of the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship (CwPAMS) Programme completed a year long fellowship and successfully graduated on the 4th of September 2020 as the first cohort of the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for England’s Global Health (CPhOGH) Fellows. The CPhOGH Fellows scheme was a unique leadership development programme with the aim of cultivating pharmacists as clinical leaders of the future and was the result of an initial request made by Dr Keith Ridge, England’s Chief Pharmaceutical Officer.
The Fellowship was led by the CPA and funded by Health Education England (HEE) and was the first global health fellowship for pharmacists in the UK. It supported the appointed fellows by broadening their knowledge and understanding of global health through their active participation in the CwPAMS programmes which took place in Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia between 2019 – 2020. In 2021, our second cohort of thirteen fellows was appointed to work across eight African regions as part of the second round of CwPAMS which extended further into Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. An additional positive impact of the first fellow’s programme was to cultivate a team of mentorship leaders for the successful candidates that followed.
Dr Keith Ridge, Chief Pharmaceutical Officer
"Tackling the growing risk of antimicrobial resistance is a challenge for global society and this initiative offers specialist pharmacists in the UK an excellent professional opportunity, while also sharing their expertise in challenging environments as part of what needs to be a concerted campaign to reduce inappropriate antibiotic prescribing."
