To help carry forward the Commodities Commission’s recommendations at the global and national levels, and to ensure joint planning and advocacy across the RMNCH continuum, PATH convenes an advocacy working group (AWG) as a board alternate and representative of the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health. The AWG includes approximately 100 partners from more than ten countries.

The AWG has dedicated funding to develop and implement an advocacy strategy to accelerate the momentum around RMNCH commodities, programs, and services in four countries: Malawi, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Uganda.

The AWG is pleased to announce a request for applications (RFA) from partner organizations in each of the four target countries to develop a policy advocacy strategy and carry out strategic advocacy activities to advance the recommendations of the Commodities Commission. Applicant organizations must be registered and/or incorporated as a nongovernmental organization or nonprofit organization in Malawi, Senegal, Sierra Leone, or Uganda. The proposed activities must correspond and correlate to the approved Commodities Commission work plans put forth by the ministry of health and partners (see attached RFA for more information) and support broader RMNCH initiatives occurring in each country.

On behalf of the AWG, PATH may make up to two awards per country, for no more than US$50,000 per award. Funding under this award will expire March 31, 2015.

PATH is now accepting applications. Applications are due no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 19, 2014. Please see the attached application materials for more information.
