SHARE-India PHMI has been conducting public health training and implementing programs that emphasize the standardization of public health delivery programs in India. In this context, PHMI, in collaboration with the U.S. Government's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a yearlong fellowship program "Public Health Field Leadership Fellowship" (PHFLF) to maximize the public health management and HIV prevention capacity of individuals, government bodies, and Voluntary Organizations (NGOs, CBOs, Government agencies, etc.) that serve communities and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS in India.

PHFLF aimed to familiarize participants with fundamental concepts of public health, their application to HIV, evidence-based strategies in HIV surveillance, prevention, treatment, and care. The Fellowship also supported the development of field management and leadership skills in the context of public health.

In addition to this long term fellowship SHARE-India PHMI routinely undertakes trainings on programme management, data analysis, and evidence based planning etc for various cadres of the workforce engaged in public health activities. Each training undertaken by PHMI is tailor made to suit the participant requirements and supports them in fulfilling their roles as public health professionals in general and specifically as part of the programmes they are engaged in.
