European Commission Call for Proposals: Health and Rights

Deadline: 10 December 2013

The European Commission has issued a worldwide call for proposals under the ‘Investing in People’ programme which pursues a broad approach to development and poverty reduction, with the general aim of improving human and social development levels in partner countries in accordance with the United Nations Millennium Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals.

This call for proposalas is for ‘Promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights – universal access to reproductive health’ with the overall objective of contributing to poverty reduction and to improving the wellbeing of populations in developing countries through better reproductive health and informed family planning choices. The specific objective is to contribute to improved universal access to reproductive health, MDG 5.B, in developing countries which have the worst indicators.

Priority will be given to measures that clearly identify and target the most vulnerable people with the least access to reproductive health; and collaborate closely with the public sector in the country where the action takes place, including them as a partner,6 and support the implementation of public policy and capacity building designed to give better access to Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH).

Proposals which demonstrate the following aspects will be considered favourably:

  • promote comprehensive measures to increase tailored access to reproductive health at local, national or — where relevant — regional level;
  • add value and seek synergy with existing SRH measures and with other major health projects and initiatives in the country;
  • demonstrate alignment with national or subnational health policies, strategies and plans and include strategies on how to ensure country ownership and credible sustainability;
  • align with relevant national and international policies, such as the programme of action of the ICPD and its daughter agreements and support regional agreements in the domain, such as the Maputo Plan of Action and the Campaign for Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa (CARMMA) in Africa. Furthermore, alignment with best practices and UN guidelines in the field of sexual and reproductive health will be valued;
  • strengthen local civil society organisations and local authorities (technical cooperation, capacity building, redistribution of grants).

This is a restricted call for proposals and only concept note has to be submitted initially. All applicants have to be registered at PADOR before applying for this opportunity.

Organizations based in developing countries can apply besides those from the European Union. For projects proposed in exclusively in the least developed countries, applicants from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland and United States may also apply.

I am from SUBANG Foundation, a grassroots registered NGO based here in Davao Oriental, Philippines which seeks to improve the well-being of poor and vulnerable upland farmers, especially women and children for 11 years. We are offering our services and intervention focused on agriculture, environment and education of children. We are assisting some community-based people organizations in uplifting their household income through organic farming to eradicate poverty. Currently, our foundation is operating in 3 municipalities in the province of Davao Oriental. However, we are getting more challenges as we need more help in order to be able to assist more to attain the minimum education as this will go along the way in creating a productive society from the vulnerable people. Due to limited financial resources, we look for some financial support and we look forward in seeking funding grant support from any interested intitution to improve the life of poor and most especially the vulnerable upland farmers here in the Philippines.
