Our connection

with the Atlantic Fellows family


Atlantic Fellows - a global community for a better world.

Through the global, interconnected programmes, Atlantic Fellows collaborate across disciplines and borders, to understand and address the root causes of pressing problems. These include socio-economic and racial inequality; barriers to full participation in democracy; the social determinants of health and access to quality care.

There are six Atlantic Fellows programmes, each distinct and grounded in its local context. 

The Atlantic Institute supports fellows throughout their careers with opportunities to meet, learn from each other and connect with the global Atlantic Fellows community.


The Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity in South Africa programme, forms part of the six programmes offered at TEKANO. It aims to improve health prospects and outcomes in South Africa by addressing the social determinants of health.
