The APMEN Fellowship Program, launched on World Malaria Day in April 2010 aims to equip the next generation 
of leaders and health workers from low and middle-income, malaria-endemic regions with the tools and training to guide malaria elimination in the coming critical decades. The Fellowship Program is also structured to strengthen the exchanges and lesson sharing among APMEN Country Partners and Partner Institutions. In 2012 the network agreed to expand this program to include content focused on Thematic Fellowships.
