Psychiatrist for the Dr. Mario Pagenel Fellowship at PIH, Kigali, Rwanda - CLOSE: 15/12/2017 Kigali


Psychiatrist for the Dr. Mario Pagenel Fellowship at PIH, Kigali, Rwanda - CLOSE: 15/12/2017 Kigali



Position Title:  Psychiatrist for the Dr. Mario Pagenel Fellowship in Global Mental Health Delivery


Location: Rwanda


Organizational Profile:


Partners In Health (PIH) is an international health organization relentlessly committed to improving the health of the poor and marginalized. PIH partners with local governments to build local capacity and works closely with impoverished communities to deliver high-quality health care, address the root causes of illness, train providers, advance research, and advocate for global policy change. 


PIH currently has implementation programs in Haiti, Rwanda, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Peru, Mexico, Russia, Sierra Leone, Navajo Nation (New Mexico) and Rosebud (South Dakota) . Through our partnership with Harvard Medical School and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, we support a wide range of programs in dozens of other countries around the world. 


General Responsibilities:





The Dr. Mario Pagenel Global Mental Health Delivery Fellowship with Partners In Health (PIH), is a placement in Rwanda with Partners In Health’s sister organization, Inshuti Mu Buzima in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.


In cooperation with the Government of Rwanda and the Clinton Health Access Initiative, PIH/IMB has supported the Ministry to strengthen the public Health system in rural, underserved areas of the country since 2005. With few specialists serving more than nine million people, hospitals and clinics in rural Rwanda are faced with a high burden of neuropsychiatric problems. The Government of Rwanda is committed to strengthening service delivery, infrastructure, and research in mental health throughout the country. At the three district sites where PIH/IMB works in collaboration with the Ministry, community health workers (CHW) are mobilized to attend to both infectious and noncommunicable diseases. There is ongoing work to elaborate a CHW mental health component. This decentralized system builds upon efforts by Rwanda’s Ministry of Health to expand on its successful HIV initiatives through scalable approaches to health care delivery for chronic conditions common in rural areas, including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, hemato-oncologic and neuropsychiatric conditions. With the opening of a world-class teaching hospital at Butaro in northern Rwanda in 2011, there exists ongoing opportunities to further develop model hospital- and health center- based public- sector mental health services. The Fellowship supports training of hospital and health center staff in Rwanda in management of severe mental health problems. Enhancing the capacity of IMB to hone the mental health care skills of both specialist and general practitioners in public hospital and health center settings is a central aim of the Fellowship. The Fellow will liaise closely with the Rwandan Ministry of Health, teaching healthcare professionals at all levels and supporting the mental health desk at the Ministry in its task of decentralization and integration of mental health services nationally.


The Fellowship provides an opportunity for career development in global mental health delivery for post-graduate psychiatrists. It offers a combined focus on training, research and advocacy. The fellowship will consist mostly of service delivery, and includes an academic research component.


Over the course of the year, the Fellow will develop an area of academic focus in global health related to mental health service delivery, selecting an academic mentor with expertise in their area of interest. Fellows will therefore have the opportunity to collaborate in and develop mentored research and educational projects, and will have the option of participating in ongoing research efforts. To facilitate career development in global mental health, Fellows will be eligible to attend a 3-week intensive summer program in Global Health Effectiveness at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health.
