The Grant Management Program by GIZ’s Backup Health Program

BACKUP’s grant management support comprises technical assistance on M&E, financial management, reporting, oversight and good governance. These interventions help to ensure that the project is implemented in accordance with the contractual terms and conditions, and also help to prevent the misappropriation of funds.

BACKUP supports PRs to develop risk management strategies for SRs and to strengthen their oversight and governance function. Furthermore, BACKUP develops risk management manuals, trains PRs on the implementation of risk mitigation strategies, and supports civil society organisations to improve how they implement.

    I will like to request for application to support our ongoing health program in my community in Oguns State, Nigeria. The disease prevention and health promotion program aimed at reducing the mortality trends of heart diseases, diabetes, malaria, TB, and HIV/AIDS among the population of all ages. Our current free health program will continue to make positive impact on the community members if our program and projects are financially supported. Thank you.
