Open Call for Applications for the Africa Mother and Child Grants Programme 2020 – 2021

3 December 2019

THET is pleased to announce a fourth round of grants under the Africa Grants Programme (AGP) with support from Johnson & Johnson.

The AGP supports the training of health workers in low- and middle-income countries, through engaging partnerships between health organisations in the UK and Ireland and their counterparts in Sub-Saharan Africa.  More information on the AGP and the projects funded in the first, second and third rounds of the grant programme is available here.

The fourth round of the Africa Grants Programme will take a different approach from previous years, moving away from community healthcare to focus on essential surgery and anaesthesia for mothers and children.

The focus of this round will be on reducing morbidity and mortality from conditions requiring essential surgical intervention and/or enhancing patient safety as a result of improved anaesthetic care through the training of relevant health workers. The aim of this stream is to improve the access to, and availability of, quality surgery and/or anaesthetic care for maternal, neonatal or paediatric surgical conditions.

THET welcomes grant applications to strengthen the healthcare workforce in delivering essential surgical and anaesthetic care to mothers and children in the following 8 countries:

  • Ethiopia
  • Ghana
  • Kenya
  • Malawi
  • Nigeria
  • Tanzania
  • Uganda
  • Zambia

Unfortunately, we will be unable to accept applications from countries outside of these 8.

Funding Available and Application Details

Grants are available from £30,000 up to a maximum of £75,000. All funded projects are expected to last between 12 and 15 months. Project activities can be implemented from May 2020 until July 2021.

Core Eligibility

All those considering applying should carefully read the eligibility and funding criteria contained in the Call for Applications and Q&A document as these may differ from previous THET grant streams.

This grants round will only accept applications from established health partnerships – partnerships which have worked together on projects, including scoping studies, for 6 months or more.

    I would like to thank the Johnson & Johnson for this important program concerning the the support for Mothers and Child Grant. Meanwhile my kind request is that please if possible in future I would also appreciate if the some program can be extended to South Sudan. Due to the crisis that south Sudan was and still under going they are a lot of needs special for mothers and chlidren across the country more so the affected states of Unity, Jongolei and Upper Nile including the Central Equatoria State among the ten states under the former distribution.
