A new funding opportunity to help improve Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) measures in low and middle income countries.

This funding opportunity is to offer funding specifically aimed at improving Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) measures in overseas health facilities. It is intended to fund projects that would strengthen the capacity of the overseas country’s health services to cope with future outbreak and emergency situations associated with highly infectious diseases alongside the effective delivery of essential day-to-day health services.
