Grant to a USA, Canada, or International nonprofit, for-profit, or IHE to improve accessibility to healthcare services for the treatment of infectious diseases in designated African countries. A technical assistance session is scheduled for October 6. This initiative aims to use a public health approach to addressing wide-scale infectious diseases and health concerns.
The RRHS is a five-year program to address fundamental health systems constraints that impede the availability of and access to high quality health services related to infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, and other priority health matters in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Liberia, Sierra Leone and South Sudan.
The foundational RRHS initiative aims to use public health approaches to support the implementation of countries’ national health strategies and recovery plans, to respond to emerging epidemics, to prevent, manage and control HIV and other diseases, and to improve population health outcomes.
As a complementary program to the RRHS, the RRHO aims to strengthen the organizational capacity of RRHS entities focusing on collaboratively determined key priority areas. This effort will create a transnational community of practice supporting national and international learning towards a sustainable approach to enhance each country’s ability to lead, manage, coordinate, implement, and finance an effective response to combating priority health issues.
Activities to strengthen and ensure the sustainability of partner organizations working under the RRHS are to be accomplished through the provision of technical assistance focused on a variety of priority areas including program and financial management, grants management, leadership and governance, personnel management, and evaluation and monitoring.
By strengthening the organizational capacity of impact partners in each country, HRSA seeks to maintain the ability of each institution to continue playing a positive role in addressing the HRH needs and to benefit health care providers and the populations they serve in the four countries. The importance of also focusing on broader organizations and systems is captured in this widely cited definition of capacity as supporting “an ability of individuals, organizations or systems to perform appropriate functions effectively, efficiently and sustainably.”
