Alliance for Public Health announced Call for Proposals within its new GF regional project for 5 Balkan countries
Alliance for Public Health is soliciting proposals from civil society organizations and their consortiums to substantially improve financial sustainability of HIV interventions among key populations in 2019-2021 in the five SEE countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia. The Call for Proposals is announced under the Regional Program Sustainability of Services for Key Populations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia funded by the Global Fund, and operating in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, along with Southeast Europe. The overall fund of the call for SEE proposals is up to US$ 1.5 million for the three years. The deadline for proposals submission is 31 January 2019.
The overall focus of the Regional Program in Southeastern Europe is to support sustainability efforts in this region. The grants to be funded under this Call for Proposals constitute one of the three elements of the Regional Program. The other two elements are: (1) operations of the Regional Coordination Mechanism, which will support oversight of the Regional Program in SEE and provide advice on the Program, and (2) technical assistance to be directly supported by the Alliance for Public Health-led consortium (themes of technical support to include service costing, social contracting for NGOs and city level interventions).
The call for proposals aims to support national civil society groups or their consortiums, together with other country partners, to improve financial and programmatic sustainability of HIV interventions among key populations in the five countries. The particular focus for sustainability is services delivered by civil society groups among key populations and people living with HIV.
Eligilbility. Only registered in SEE national or regional civil society organizations or their consortia are eligible.
All applicants should have a track record of advocacy of services for key populations and people living with HIV and should have a strong link with the services and groups of key populations. The applicant organization is expected to have a strong record of transparency, partnerships and good practice in management.
Capacity to achieve policy results is critical for applicant’s success.
Macedonia and Montenegro each can apply for a maximum of annual amount of US$ 80,000 for each of the three years. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania and Serbia each can apply for a maximum annual amount of US$120,000 for each of the three years.
All details can be found on the official web-page of the Alliance.
