Violence and Injury Prevention

Applications for MENTOR-VIP now open

Applications for MENTOR-VIP, WHO's global violence and injury prevention mentoring programme, are now open through 11 May 2012. The programme fosters the development of skills through the exchange of knowledge and experience between a mentor and a mentee wishing to learn skills in a particular area.

Matching of mentor and mentee is made on the basis of their respective profiles and the overall principles and objectives of MENTOR-VIP. Once a mentorship is awarded, the mentee and mentor jointly plan the activities that will be undertaken during the mentorship. Mentorships are for a 12-month period and begin in September of each year.
