Africa Grants Programme 2019 – 2020. Call for applications is now open!-START-UP GRANTS
THET is delighted to announce a call for applications for Start-Up Grants. These grants form part of the third round of the Johnson & Johnson Africa Grants Programme, and offer the chance for UK institutions working in the fields of Essential Surgery and Anaesthesia, or Community Health, to form health partnerships with their counterparts working in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Africa Grants Programme, now in its third year, supports the training of health workers in LMICs, through engaging partnerships between health organisations in the UK and Ireland and their counterparts in Africa. More information on the AGP and the projects funded in the first round of the grant programme is available here.
What are Health Partnerships?
A health partnership is typically a formalised relationship between a health institution in the UK and a counterpart health institution in a low-income country. Health institutions can include NGOs working in global health, academic bodies, professional bodies, clinical networks, or healthcare facilities. In many cases, the partnerships are developed by institutions with complementary objectives and, on the UK side, are typically made up of volunteers from the UK partner institution.
