EJAF: Pioneer grants

Elton John AIDS Foundation is offering a funding opportunity for Russia and Ukraine.


Pioneer Grants can be multi-year, and do not have a prescribed award amount. They must fulfil the following criteria:

• They must have a focus on service delivery
• They must be catalytic in nature
• They must be scalable in design
• They must be innovative
• They must operate within one of our programme countries
• They must be able to track changes such as access to condoms, HIV testing and treatment of programme beneficiaries.


Countries where the Pioneer Grant is applicable:

Cameroon, Cote D’Ivoire, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Myanmar (Burma), Nigeria, Russian Federation, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Viet Nam, Zambia and Zimbabwe.


If you have read all of the eligibility criteria and you wish to submit a Concept Note for consideration, please follow the link below.

Please do not send Concept Notes via email – they will not be considered.

The deadline for submissions is 19th July 2016 at 6pm (GMT).

During this call for proposals, we are particularly interested in Concept Notes that look to support People who Inject Drugs, Sex Workers and Prison Populations.

Please note – a separate fund for programmes supporting Men who have Sex with Men in sub-Saharan Africa will be launched by EJAF later in 2016.
