REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL: PPF-2019-001: Accelerating Immunisation and Health Systems Strengthening Program Grants in Papua New Guinea

Expand/Contract

Background / Overview
The PNG Partnership Fund, managed by Abt Associates, has been engaged by the Governments of Papua New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand and the Vaccine Alliance (GAVI) to manage the Immunisation Grant Process for Accelerating Immunisation and Health Systems Strengthening Program Grants.

Objective
This donor-supported programme is aimed at assisting the acceleration of immunisation service delivery/outreach by enabling provinces to immediately scale up providing services, while at the same time providing an incentive and support for them to begin making resources available for service delivery through official financing mechanisms.  Provinces will take on the responsibility for longer term sustainable financing of immunisation.  An additional objective is to demonstrate how, with the necessary technical support and service delivery progressively resourced by the provinces, immunisation rates can start to rise, serving as an example and viable model for other provinces to adopt.

Proposal Particulars
This is a limited Grant Opportunity where Papua New Guinean Provincial Authorities/ Offices are invited to submit one of the following:

  1. a Proposal directly from the Provincial Authority/ Office; or
  2. a joint Proposal between a Provincial Authority/ Office and an Immunisation Support Provider led by the Immunisation Support Provider (faith-based organisation, non-government organisation or private sector organisations registered to operate in Papua New Guinea).


The following Papua New Guinean provinces have been identified to be prioritised for support from this program to increase routine immunisation coverage: Western, East Sepik, West Sepik, Morobe, Madang, Gulf, Southern Highlands, Eastern Highlands, Western Highlands, Jiwaka, Chimbu, Enga, Oro, Central and ARoB.

Closing date and time for RFP submissions: 18 April 2019, 5:00 pm Port Moresby local time
