Offer: ViiV Healthcare ‘Positive Action for Children Fund’ Call for Proposals 2014 - Deadline: March 11th at 23:59 GMT

ViiV Healthcare is accepting concept notes for ‘Positive Action for Children Fund’ grant program 2014.
The grant program is focused on non-governmental and community-based organizations that can deliver change at a community level.
The Fund aims to support global efforts towards Countdown to Zero – The Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections Among Children by 2015 and Keeping their Mothers Alive.
It also aims to alleviate the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and children’s health by supporting interventions that engage affected communities, developing their capacity to participate and lead.

80% of the fund will go to 15 priority countries (Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Angola, Burundi, Chad, Tanzania, Kenya and India) for PMTCT interventions. The maximum funding available will be £300,000 over three years.
Minimum grant request to be made is £60,000 (over 3 years).

The PACF Funding Areas are:
Pursuing community engagement, participation and leadership;
Using patient focused and family-centered approaches;
Achieving integration between HIV services, and between HIV and Sexual and reproductive health (S&RH) services;
Generating demand for S&RH and PMTCT services;
Using an evidence base and generating evidence;
Supporting or delivering advocacy; and
Strengthening grassroots action and organizations.

Only the proposal relevant to one of the following five themes will be considered for funding:
Community interventions addressing loss to follow-up in Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT)
Community advocacy for gender equity in education and health, including but not limited to, for positive mothers and their affected families
Preventing unintended pregnancies
Community intervention to keep HIV negative women negative
Early infant diagnosis

To be successful for ‘Positive Action for Children Fund’, proposed project should consist of new work that should not been previously funded; it can include projects transferred to a new location(s) and/or include the expansion of a recently tested model or pilot.
Focused initiatives that demonstrate real change in one or two of the above mentioned themes are more likely to bring best outcome and thus funded by the grant program.

The submitted concept notes must demonstrate how the proposed projects meet one of the following areas:
Patient focused and family-centered approaches
Greater and meaningful involvement of people living with HIV and AIDS
Addressing stigma and discrimination
Generating demand
Evidence-based and evidence-generating.
