Health Grants Program by the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)to Fund Projects to Combat Stigma and Discrimination

The US Embassy in Port Moresby is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity under the Health Grants Program.

This funding opportunity is made possible by the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and is seeking to fund projects to combat stigma and discrimination (including violence), particularly associated with the key populations (KP) of female sex workers and men who have sex with men in Papua New Guinea.

Applicants may request a maximum of US $15,000 (K49,000).

A total of US $127,000 (K417, 000) is available for this program.

Applications may be submitted at any time for consideration before the closing date of this announcement on June 30, 2017.

The Health Grants Program encourages projects that promote partnerships among two or more local organisations for a common goal; include KPs as project implementers and/or target beneficiaries; incorporate the use of social media; and identify barriers that hinder KPs from accessing health services and develop innovative solutions to address these barriers.

Applications can be found on the US Embassy Port Moresby website: https://pg.usembassy.gov/small-grants-request-proposals/
