Johnson & Johnson/THET Africa Grants Programme (AGP) 2020/2021 for health workers in developing countries

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 organizations in the UK and Ireland and their counterparts in Sub-Saharan Africa.

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.
