Technology-driven Solutions for Tackling Corruption in Sub-Saharan Africa

The Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Programme (PHP) is one of the five Transparency International (TI) Global Network Thematic Initiatives (GNTI). It is driven by the purpose to achieve genuine change in the pharmaceutical & healthcare sector through reducing corruption and promoting transparency, integrity and accountability. We apply TI’s strengths and expertise to contribute to the Programme’s overall goal of improving global health and healthcare outcomes for the benefit of all people of all ages.

Established in 2015, the PHP Health Action Fund disburses grants to TI national chapters to fund activities, in whole or in part, that contribute towards the Programme’s long term goals.

In its second instalment, the Health Action Fund, in cooperation with the Indigo Trust, is seeking out opportunities to support innovative, technology-driven solutions to overcome barriers to accessing healthcare, and ensuring the accessibility of quality and affordable medicinal products. This Call for Proposals is directed specifically at TI Chapters in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Applicants are encouraged to put forward projects that seek to support increased transparency relating e.g. to Research & Development, Manufacturing, Marketing, and Service Delivery.

Applications under this Call for Proposals can be submitted by any TI National Chapter or Chapter in Formation in Sub-Saharan Africa. Chapters can submit one sole proposal and/or multiple joint proposals involving two or more Chapters. There are no restrictions on the location, size or types of activities within proposed projects but projects should begin within three months of the grant being awarded and have a total duration of six months.
