Health Care Grants Program
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GENTE Health Care Grants Program funds efforts to strengthen Equatorial Guinea's health system. The GENTE Consortium anticipates that over 400,000 USD will be available each year over a four-year period to fund projects that will enhance health care quality, support health outcomes, and improve public health in Equatorial Guinea. Program focal areas are subject to change in response to the shifting needs of the country.
Proposal submission process
GENTE will issue calls for proposals on an annual basis.
Interested organizations may submit concept notes detailing project objectives.
After an initial screening process, select applicants will be invited to submit full project proposals.
All proposals will undergo a competitive review process to ensure technical quality and compliance with GENTE's program requirements.
Health in Equatorial Guinea
The COVID-19 pandemic is placing heightened strain on health care workers and medical facilities around the world. This is particularly salient in Equatorial Guinea, where there are critical shortages of skilled healthcare workers, medical equipment, and trauma care facilities. These challenges are further amplified in remote rural areas. By providing funding to areas of greatest need, the grants program will facilitate relief efforts in the short term and a more resilient health system in the long term.
Progress Towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
GENTE is proud to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At a time when global health is under challenge, the Health Care Grants Program will ensure that funding reaches the most vulnerable communities in Equatorial Guinea, satisfying UN Sustainable Development Goal #3: Good health and well-being. It is more critical now than ever to build the capacity of medical facilities and staff.
