ESTHER Ireland: COVID-19 Response Grant
Deadline: 31 August 2020
Grant Amount: up to €6,000
Those working in North South partnerships need to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Partnerships are fundamentally about long-term commitment to work together towards a common interest. This means showing solidarity in a time of crisis and therefore co-operation should increase, despite the disruptions to travel. Partnerships are now more important than ever, and it is a time for closer and more frequent contacts with partners in LMICs than before. The focus of the call is primarily to provide partnerships with additional support that is needed in response to COVID-19. Activities can be to protect the population’s health from COVID-19 and its consequences and/or contribute to the treatment of the affected people and the maintenance of essential services.
- Partnerships must demonstrate clear evidence of quality of partnership, in line with the ESTHER Charter for Quality of Partnerships.
- Eligible institutions are Irish hospitals, hospital groups, other service-delivery institutions, primary care facilities, public health institutions, training bodies and research institutions that have an established partnership with a counterpart overseas institution in a low-or middle-income country.
