IHP+ has funded a small grants scheme since 2010, which has been managed by Oxfam under the name Health Policy Action Fund (HPAF).

The HPAF aims to support southern civil society networks and coalitions to become more effectively engaged in national health policy processes, contribute to the effectiveness of development cooperation and hold partners accountable for their commitments.

The Health Policy Action Fund (HPAF) invites Civil Society Organisations from 36 IHP+ countries to submit proposals for funding of health policy work at national level. The grants will fund work over an 18-month period starting in February 2015, and have a maximum of US$ 30,000 per grantee. Interested applicants are requested to visit the HPAF website at www.healthpolicyactionfund.org  for the detailed Criteria for Selection and the proposal application forms.

The call for proposals opens 10 December 2014. The closing date for receiving applications is 17h00 (Pretoria Time) on 16 January 2015.

Questions related to the call can be sent to the Grant Coordinator Cheryl Jakob-Singh: cjacob@oxfam.de. Proposals shall be submitted to: hpaf2014@oxfam.de

National civil society health networks and coalitions or individual civil society organisations working on a broad range of health policy issues will be eligible to apply. The HPAF does not fund the implementation of health interventions.
