Call for HIV/AIDS Project Proposals
Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
The Country Coordinating Mechanism, Mauritius has submitted a national funding request to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (GFATM) to apply for funding for the prevention, treatment, care and support of HIV/AIDS.
The Concept Note is focused on Key Affected Populations (KAPs), i.e. People Who Inject Drugs, Female Sex Workers, Men having Sex with Men, Transgender people and their respective sexual partners.
The national funding request was developed based on community consultations with the populations mentioned and highlights the importance of an inclusive response, whereby the communities themselves are directly involved in the planning, implementation and review of activities.
Non-Government Organisations interested in becoming sub-recipients of funds to implement activities for the prevention of HIV and AIDS are invited to submit sub-proposals for inclusion in grant implementation.
The Country Coordinating Mechanism will select sub-proposals that will be included in the grant implementation. Only organisations whose submission has been retained will become sub-recipients of GFATM should the country Concept Note be approved.
Grant implementation will be guided by the country funding request and the National Action Plan 2016-2021.
Target groups that have to be reached over the period 2018-2020 are the following:
- Men having Sex with Men – 700 (2018), 800 (2019), 900 (2020) MSM to be reached with HIV prevention per year
- Transgenders – 440 (2018), 400 (2019), 400 (2020) TGs to be reached with HIV prevention per year
- Sex Workers – 1200 (2018), 1200 (2019), 1095 (2020) SWs to be reached with HIV prevention per year
- Persons who inject drugs – 2,580 (2018), 2750 (2019), 2805 (2020) to be reached with HIV prevention and needle exchange programme per year
Based on these varying targets, interested NGOs should make two budgeted proposals: one for the minimum number of persons to be reached, one for the maximum number of persons to be reached.
The deadline for the submission of sub-proposals is 23 June 2017.
