In order to support the response to COVID-19, the Access to Health Fund is opening a new funding window for local civil society organizations. This COVID-19 small grants fund is channeling through the Local Resource Centre Any local civil society organizations (local NGOs, CBOs, FBOs) providing community based COVID-19 responses in order to support and complement the Ministry of Health and Sports (MoHS) and other providers for better access to vulnerable populations including internally displaced persons, migrant populations, persons with disabilities, elderly, women and children, at-risk men, etc.as a fund manager in collaboration with the Fund Management Office of Access to Health Fund.
The focus of all grants should be in conflict-affected townships in Chin, Kachin, Kayin, Kayah, Mon, Rakhine, and Shan States prioritized by the Access to Health Fund, as well as Sagaing and Yangon which have by far the high burden of cases and huge numbers of migrants (who continue to arrive in some places). Proposals must indicate how they will include and prioritize vulnerable groups, including but not limited to: internally displaced persons, migrants, persons with disabilities, women at risk, children, etc.
Please send a proposal (see the Google drive link) to the Local Resource Centre not later than 10th July 2020 with an outline of needs, proposed approach, and budget.
