Deadline: 26 August 2022
Positive Action invites applications to the 2022 Round 3 funding for Momentum Grants addressing inequalities and power imbalances to HIV prevention, testing and treatment for adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in their diversity in Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia.
Focus of Call
- Positive Action invites proposals that will scale up community-based interventions which will increase the ability of AGYW (15-24 years old) to adopt healthier choices through addressing structural barriers to reduce vulnerability to HIV in Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.
- Positive action is keen to see explicit linkages and/or partnerships that demonstrate how you will achieve your overall goal. Specific interventions should:
- Empower, develop resilience and increase independence
- Create safe and supportive communities
- Scale up provision of quality integrated HIV/sexual and reproductive
- Create an enabling environment
Applications of up to £100,000 per year over three years, i.e. up to £300,000 over a three-year period will be awarded.
- Non-governmental and community-based organisations that can deliver change at a community level through their links with or representation of the communities affected especially adolescent girls and young women in all their diversity. They encourage women led and youth led groups to apply.
- Your project must focus on scaling up or replicating interventions that are proven to work in addressing inequalities to HIV prevention, testing and treatment for girls and young women (15 -24 years old) in their diversity including cisgender adolescent girls and young women, young women who sell sex, those who inject or use drugs and LBTQ adolescent girls and young women in your context.
- The scale up can be based on lessons learned from a project implemented outside your organisation. It cannot be a pilot project.
- Community Focus Positive Action believes that engaging affected and local communities is critical to addressing the drivers of health and life inequalities, it therefore seeks to promote community responses that work at the level of changing beliefs, attitudes and behaviours to improve health and rights at the community level.
