The European Commission is requesting NGOs to apply for its new funding opportunity made available under the theme of “Good Health for All.”
The adoption of ‘Programme for Action on the Crisis in Human Resources for Health (HRH) in Developing Countries’ in by the EC led to a deeper understanding of the critical issues faced in the area of human resources to achieve better healthcare globally.
Some of the activities that can be funded under this call for proposals can be building the skills and knowledge of civil society organizations so that they can effectively carry out advocacy on HRH issues, enhance the capacities of policymakers and other public sector actions and also undertake operational research.
Although interventions can be made in any country, the EC will give stronger preference to countries which face a severe shortage of healthcare professionals.
The minimum and maximum amounts to be proposed are €300,000 and €1,500,000 respectively with some additional funding sourced from other channels.
