The Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) project invites local, regional and international organizations currently implementing programs focused on environment and natural resource management, food security, resilience, and/or livelihoods program in Ghana to submit applications for a population, health and environment (PHE) project to advance community-based family planning (CBPF) and other health services through the use of an integrated PHE approach. One subgrant for up to $175,000 USD, for a period of up to twelve months, will be awarded to carry out activities to meet the following objectives:
- Integrate CBFP and other health services (e.g. malaria) into an existing environment and natural resource management, food security, resilience, or livelihoods program.
- Increase access to CBFP services (including community-based distribution of selected contraceptives) and referral for other methods.
- Work closely with APC to build the organizational capacity and/or close links with government or other service delivery partners to continue providing services after the project ends.
- Collect and analyze data to add to the global body of knowledge on the impact a PHE model can have on sustainability and the feasibility of integrating CBFP and health into ongoing environment and natural resource management, food security, resilience, livelihoods or similar projects.
