In 2016 the Government of Australia provided funding to BVGH through WIPO Re:Search (Funds in Trust 2 [FIT2]) to develop and manage an Australian and Indo-Pacific region Fellowship program. BVGH interviewed host laboratories in Australia, identified qualified research institutes and researchers, interviewed both parties, and matched fellows with hosts. Each fellowship experience is designed around a project of mutual interest. Six training fellowships - all with a focus on malaria research and product development - have been completed and another nine are in earlier stages of planning.
Sabbaticals focus on neglected tropical diseases, malaria, and tuberculosis research and product development.
