THET is pleased to announce a third round of grants under the Africa Grants Programme (AGP) with support from Johnson & Johnson. Moreover, the AGP supports the training of health workers in low- and middle-income countries, through engaging established partnerships between health organisations in the UK and Ireland as well as their counterparts in Sub-Saharan Africa.
THET welcomes grant applications to strengthen the healthcare workforce in one of the following two areas:
Stream 1: Essential Surgical and Anaesthetic Care
This stream will focus 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. Furthermore, the aim of this stream is to improve the access to, and availability of, quality surgery and/or anaesthetic care (particularly for maternal, neonatal or paediatric surgical conditions).
Stream 2: Community Healthcare
This stream will focus on increasing the availability and quality of essential healthcare (including attended births) as well as health information to under served populations, particularly women and children, by training those who work and serve in the community. In addition, the stream will focus on the training of cadres working in the community (Clinical Officers, Community Health Workers, etc.), which is in line with the national strategy and policies in-country. Also, partners will work at the rural and district level, outside of the central hospital systems.
