A research scientist specializing in statistics at the Ifakara Health Institute, Jacqueline Minja, is among 10 recipients of the competitive Countdown 2030 Fellowship Program for 2024.

The fellowship program, which kicked off this month, aims to enhance research and analytical capabilities to monitor and evaluate life-saving interventions in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH+N) across African countries collaborating in CD2030. 

Since 2023, Countdown to 2030 selects 10 fellows through a competitive process. Jacqueline and her colleagues will embark on a 12-month journey, comprising two residential trainings and remote support.

By the end of the workshop, fellows are expected to finalize their research projects, set up plans for manuscript writing and publishing, initiate data analysis, and gain skills in systematic reviews and scientific writing. 

The training also covers various research aspects and provides networking opportunities for future collaborations. To learn more about this visit the Countdown to 2030 website. 

Jacqueline has summarized her inspiring journey in a latest blog on the Ifakara website. In this blog she discusses her scientific journey thus far touching on some of her achievements.
