DRL AGOA Civil Society Network Support - 0 views

  •  
    AGOA legislation, authorized to 2025, calls for the establishment of a United States-Sub-Saharan Africa Trade and Economic Cooperation Forum (AGOA Forum) to meet annually to discuss trade and investment between the United States and the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, and the implementation of AGOA. To ensure civil society participation in AGOA trade discussions and promote strong and inclusive sub-Saharan African economies, DRL requests proposals for a $950,000 cooperative agreement to support leadership and development of a transparent and comprehensive AGOA civil society network. In conjunction with the annual AGOA forum, projects should support the network to effectively provide observations and recommendations regarding country compliance with AGOA eligibility criteria - including the establishment of or progress toward political pluralism and the rule of law, a system to combat corruption and bribery, and protection of internationally recognized worker rights - as well as effective utilization of AGOA benefits. Programs should also support local civil society to provide input on country compliance with requirements to not engage in gross violations of human rights and to cooperate with international efforts to eliminate human rights violations. Activities may include, but are not limited to: outreach, support, and mentoring for human rights and labor rights civil society organizations (CSOs) in AGOA eligible countries; assistance for local CSOs to prioritize and monitor key issues; and support to strategize, prepare for and attend the Forum and follow-up on Forum recommendations throughout the year.

Building Capacity for National Public Health Institutes - 0 views

  •  
    Consolidating and organizing public health expertise and systems within a National Public Health Institute (NPHI) is a successful way for countries to carry out essential public health functions and improve their accountability and efficiency. The CDC, with over 70 years of experience as the U.S. NPHI, is helping countries around the world increase surveillance, laboratory, and outbreak response capacity to improve recognition of and response to health threats. An NPHI coupled with stronger local outbreak detection and response capabilities offers a sustainable solution for building global public health capacity, achieving global health security, and increasing public health impact. This Notice of Funding Award (NOFO) seeks to build upon activities supported by CDC through partnerships with Ministries of Health, National Public Health Institutes, and organizations that have capacity by providing technical assistance supporting the establishment and development of strong NPHI's globally.

Open Government Partnership Reforms - 0 views

  •  
    MENA governments - especially in Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia - have undertaken important reform initiatives to modernize their public administrations and pass access to information laws. Several have applied to join the Open Government Partnership (OGP), an international initiative that aims to leverage capabilities of new technologies to strengthen participatory governance and fight corruption. Further actions are required to sustain this progress and implement open government principles that foster civil society collaboration with government. This project will assist governments in developing action plans to improve management and governance activities such as: budgeting, human resources management, regulatory practices, public integrity, public procurement, digital government, open government and data, risk management, and innovations. By focusing on public governance areas and creating inclusive economies and societies, this project will guide governments to benchmark their countries' progress on public sector reforms at the national and regional levels, and to compare them against international standards. Additionally, it will create the first MENA long-term strategic partnership and governance network for policy dialogue and exchange of good practices. Finally, it will deliver ad hoc policy recommendations to advance public sector reform agendas in specific sectors at the national or regional level with a focus on policies pertaining to women and youth.

Strengthening Global Health Security by implementation of the International Health Regu... - 0 views

  •  
    Nigeria has a projected estimated population size of 203,452,505 (July 2018), which makes Nigeria the most populous nation in Africa. The country's National Health Act 2014 (NHA 2014) was signed into law on October 31, 2014 and provides a legal framework for the regulation and management of Nigeria's national health system, however, much work is needed to operationalize the law. Monitoring and mitigating recurring infectious disease outbreaks, as well as detecting and controlling emerging infectious diseases, will be impacted by multiple factors that include inadequate surveillance and response systems, weakened or non-existent infrastructure and health systems and poor coordination among stakeholder agencies. Nigeria is a major gateway to many global destinations. In July 2014, the index case in the Nigeria Ebola Virus disease outbreak arrived at the international airport in Lagos, Nigeria. This index patient potentially exposed 72 persons at the airport and the hospital where he was admitted. The Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH), with guidance from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), declared an Ebola emergency and rapidly implemented a response using all available public health assets and resources. An Ebola Incident Management Center (a precursor to the current Emergency Operations Center) was established to rapidly respond to the 2014 outbreak. Using an Incident Management System (IMS) to coordinate the response and consolidate decision making, largely contributed to helping contain the Nigeria outbreak early.

    The purpose of this NOFO is to collaborate with implementing partners to support the Indonesia Government, primarily the Ministry of Health (MOH), to achieve Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) targets; implement International Health Regulations (IHR) core competencies; and prevent, detect, and respond to public health threats by targeting activities to strengthen capacity in four core public health areas: 1) Real-Time Surveillance and Reporting; 2) National Laboratory Systems; 3) Workforce Development; and 4) Emergency Management and Response. Projects considered for this NOFO should build upon the existing public health infrastructure. Activities should address recommendations from the 2017 Joint External Evaluation (JEE), align with the MOH Five Year Strategic Plan, and prioritize gaps identified in the 2018-2022 National Action Plan for Health Security. Recipients will work primarily and directly with partner governments, specifically the MOH and other government entities on the national, regional, and local levels.

    Recurring infectious disease outbreaks, Nigeria's population, inadequate allocation to healthcare in annual appropriations, inadequate surveillance, weakened or non-existent health infrastructure and systems and poor coordination among stakeholder agencies have all contributed to the weaknesses highlighted in the JEE. This impacts on the country's preparedness to respond to public health emergencies. The purpose of this NOFO is to provide technical assistance and support the ability of the NPHI to implement programs focusing on protecting and improving health through addressing the gaps and weaknesses identified in the JEE.
