BACKUP Health offers government and civil society partners to apply for Technical Support in order to improve their capacity and raise effectiveness of the Global Fund programs.
Budget ceiling: EUR 80,000
The programme’s work centres on developing capacities in three intervention areas:
- Country Coordinating Mechanisms,
- Health Systems Strengthening, and
- Grant Management.
In all three intervention areas, community engagement (which includes civil society and particularly key populations), human rights and gender aspects are considered as cross-cutting issues for promoting the meaningful engagement of all actors in Global Fund processes.
Technical Support can be requested in 2 modalities:
- Intervention Areas
- Flexible Support
Flexible Support is provided in order to overcome bottlenecks impeding the work of Global Fund recipients and partners or threatening to block Global Fund processes. Flexible support may, for instance, be offered for:
- measures linked to any of the stages of the Global Fund process — from applying for grants to implementation, evaluation, monitoring, and risk mitigation;
- preparing for the next Global Fund disbursement or funding phase — i.e. helping principal recipients to fulfil the preconditions for disbursement.
Important notice: application procedures are being altered with effect from August 2016. This page has all the relevant, updated, information and documents.
- Eligible EECA countries: only Kyrgyzstan is eligible for Intervention Areas modality, but all countries receiving Global Fund funding apart from EU member states can request Flexible Support.
- Submission of the template ‘detailed budget’ is no longer required.
Below you can find application documents for short-term consultancy assistance (Consultancy Mode) as well as the reporting form.
This paper sets out the principles of applying for technical support under the BACKUP Health (referred to herein as BACKUP) Consultancy Mode and examines all key aspects and requirements for Consultancy Mode applications and is therefore essential reading for all those considering applying to BACKUP under this modality of support.

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).
