Seeking Proposals from Sierra Leone for Advocacy for Immunization & Primary Health Care Financing

The Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI) is seeking proposals for our new project in Sierra Leone, Civil Society Organization (CSO) Advocacy for Immunization & Primary Health Care Financing. The application will be open until May 31, 2024.

GHAI is partnering with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance as part of its 5.0 strategy and to secure social and political will for equitable and sustainable financing for immunization and primary health care. GHAI is collaborating with CSOs in select countries to ensure independent, sustained, high immunization coverage and equal access to life-saving vaccines for greater domestic resource mobilization and increased accountability in reaching zero-dose children and immunization coverage (including of newly introduced vaccines).

GHAI will support CSOs in Sierra Leone to advocate for new domestic resources for primary health care and immunization; efficient use of domestic and Gavi funds to reach zero-dose children and increase immunization coverage; improved transparency and accountability for domestic and Gavi resources allocated to the immunization program.

Selected CSOs will advocate for their countries to:

  1. Increase domestic resource mobilization dedicated to primary health care and immunization service delivery;
  2. Improve execution of domestic funds and enable timely flow of funds to the frontlines;
  3. Increase the transparency and improve the tracking of public expenditure on primary health care and immunization service delivery;
  4. Ensure timely payment of Gavi co-financing obligations;
  5. Ensure new Gavi-supported vaccines are introduced and the country is aware and willing to meet any related increased co-financing obligations; and
  6. Strengthen the accountability of national and sub-national governments for reducing the number of zero-dose children and increasing immunization coverage.

Who can apply

GHAI is seeking civil society organizations in Sierra Leone that have experience with health policy advocacy, especially as it relates to increasing domestic health financing for primary health care and immunizations. Interested CSOs should have experience with engaging policymakers, community organizations, and the media. A full list of criteria can be found in the RFP.
