Expertise France announces the publication of the 2019 calls for proposals within the framework of the 5% Initiative Channel
Nest countries are eligible from EECA region:
Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine.
They invite communities to express their interest before March 6, 2019 (12: 00 UTC + 1) and submit their letters of intent to the Secretariat, according to the terms defined in the terms of reference of the call available on the Initiative 5% website.
The 5% Initiative is France’s response to a view shared by a range of actors in French-speaking countries, whereby the latter have been encountering repeated issues either in gaining access to the resources of the Global Fund or in deploying financial resources that have been received.
Application of the Initiative takes the form of an indirect contribution from France to the Global Fund equivalent in an amount equal to 5% of the total French contribution to the Fund each year, or €18 million annually, over the period 2014 to 2016.
It aims to respond to requests for technical expertise from French-speaking countries, to support them in designing, implementing, monitoring/evaluating and measuring the impact of grants allocated by the Global Fund, in order to enhance their effectiveness and their impact on health. It is based on the mobilisation of French and French-language expertise available in these domains.
In accordance with the 2005 Paris Declaration on the effectiveness of development aid and the 2008 Accra Agenda for Action, the 5% Initiative is directed at building local capacity and enhancing ownership of programmes financed by the Global Fund by the countries concerned. Close attention is paid to avoiding duplication between the 5% Initiative and other existing mechanisms and especially activities financed by the Global Fund itself.
More details can be found on the official web-page of the Initiative 5%.
