Developing Countries Clinical Fellowships 2016


The Joanna Briggs Institute ( is an
international not-for-profit, research and development
centre within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the
University of Adelaide, South Australia. Our international
collaboration includes more than 70 groups and entities
across the world. Of these, many groups are situated in
less-resourced settings such as Myanmar, Philippines,
Vietnam, India, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria,
Botswana and Uganda.

The Joanna Briggs Institute collaborates with these groups
where language, technology, geography and finance present
significant challenges to the provision of healthcare. We are
working with these groups to create an appropriate
knowledge base to support health decisions and to make
this knowledge readily available in developing countries.
The Joanna Briggs Foundation ( has been established to raise
funds that enable health professionals from developing
countries to undertake the JBI Clinical Fellowship program.

The JBI Evidence-Based Clinical Fellowship Program is a
six-month work place, evidence-based, implementation
program involving 2 x ten-day intensive training workshops
in the Joanna Briggs Institute in Adelaide, and conducting a
work place evidence implementation project in the
intervening months.
