AbstractAn Orientation of Fellowship Focal Points in the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia and WHO Country Offices was organized in Jaipur, India, on 28-30 July 2011. This was on the basis of the recommendations of the Regional Consultation on Management of Fellowship Programmes organized by SEARO in Bangkok, Thailand, in February 2011. This orientation was aimed at improving fellowship management at the country and Regional Office levels, and reviewed existing fellowship management processes to achieve greater efficiency at each stage. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the Regional Office and country offices in fellowship management were developed at the Orientation to address existing issues and challenges. Seven representatives from SEARO and one Fellowship Focal Point each from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Timor-Leste participated in the Orientation. The recommended actions and SOPs established will bring in greater efficiency in the fellowship management system in the South-East Asia Region.
