THET’s New Funding for Link Projects

THET, the international development organization based in the UK, has developed a new grant scheme to support Links projects aimed at improving global health outcomes for people living in poverty in developing countries through more coordinated link activities.

An important eligibility condition of this funding is that the applying organization should be part of an existing Health Link between one or more eligible health institutions in the UK and an eligible developing country. This means that if your NGO (working on health with a clinic or hospital and located in a developing country) has a link or partnership with an eligible health institution in the UK, then it can apply for this grant scheme.

Eligible UK health institutions: NHS Trusts, Health Centres/GP Practices, Royal Colleges, Professional Associations and Universities and Health Training Institutions.

Eligible developing country health institutions: Public hospitals/clinics, Not-for-profit hospitals and clinics, Professional Associations, Universities and Health Training Institutions and Government Health Boards/Ministries of Health.

Eligible developing countries have been defined according to World Health Organization where there is a shortage of health workers. These countries are:

Angola; Benin; Burkina Faso; Burundi; Cameroon; Central African Republic; Chad; Comoros; Congo; Cote d’Ivoire; Democratic Republic of Congo; Djibouti; Equatorial Guinea; Eritrea; Ethiopia; Gambia; Ghana; Guinea; Guinea-Bissau; Kenya; Lesotho; Liberia; Madagascar; Malawi; Mali; Mauritania; Morocco; Mozambique; Niger; Nigeria; Rwanda; Senegal; Sierra Leone; Somalia; Togo; Uganda; United Republic of Tanzania; Zambia; Zimbabwe

Afghanistan; Bangladesh; Bhutan; Cambodia; India; Indonesia; Iraq; Lao People’s Democratic Republic; Myanmar; Nepal; Pakistan; Papua New Guinea; Yemen

South America:
El Salvador; Haiti; Honduras; Nicaragua; Peru;
International NGOs are not eligible to apply and all health institutions should be recognized by the local Ministry of Health.

The deadline to submit expression of interest to this grant is 18 February 2011. For more information, visit this link.
