GIZ BACKUP Health: New Guidelines and Application Process for TA and Project Mode
As of March 2018, BACKUP* have revised application process. Applicants now submit a simple one-page summary of their proposed project. Only after BACKUP has reviewed the concept note and provided feedback will applicants be asked to write a detailed proposal and share supporting documents. New guidelines explain the process: on BACKUP’s website you can now find updated guidelines for both project and consultancy mode applications. Three revised documents provide details on BACKUP’s three intervention areas: CCMs, health system strengthening and grant management. The guidelines also contain other updates, for example on budget sizes, eligible countries, time-frames and BACKUP’s results framework.
Eligible countries include:
- Sub-Saharan Africa: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Guinea, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique (only for the intervention area CCM), Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo
- Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Kyrgyzstan
- South-East Asia: Myanmar (only for the intervention area CCM), Nepal, Pakistan
- Latin America and the Caribbean: Colombia, Peru
Global Fund partner countries not listed here can also apply for short-term consultancy assistance. This option is explained in the guidelines under the section ‘Consultancy mode – flexible support’.
Organisations and institutions from EU member states are not eligible to submit applications.
The list of eligible countries and the availability of funds is subject to change. Applicants can check GIZ website regularly – especially before submitting an application.
The guidelines suggest applicants should apply for the project mode before October 2018 and for the consultancy mode before June 2019.

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
