RSC Call for Proposals: Inviting Local and International Nongovernmental Organizations for RAI2E Grant Program

Deadline: 26 November 2017

The RAI Regional Steering Committee (RSC) is inviting proposals from local and international nongovernmental organizations to host and support the Regional Malaria Civil Society Organization (CSO) Platform for the 2018-2020 period.

This package aims to support CSOs to improve impact in country components through regional multisectoral collaboration in Regional Component of the Regional Artemisinin-resistance Initiative (RAI2E) implementing countries. Under this package, the RSC intends to enhance high-level regional, political and multi-sectoral engagement to support country-level elimination efforts. This package aims to enhance collaboration with and between CSOs at national and regional level. CSO participation can ensure vulnerable and affected communities are informed and empowered as part of an inclusive, effective malaria elimination program.


  • To provide an enabling environment for civil society actors to deliver and advocate for the delivery of adequate services to affected communities currently beyond the reach of mainstream services;
  • To ensure a strong ‘’last-mile’ response in national and regional elimination programs, thus safeguarding the Global Fund return on investment, Ensuring program quality and relevance, and progressing elimination in the hardest to reach areas and populations;
  • To improve the coordination of CSO actors at all levels (national/regional, with national programs, with CCMs, etc.) and linking them with other networks in the GMS region;
  • To improve the technical capacity of CSO actors, where they sit outside the capacity building systems of national governments (peer support and formal training);
  • To ensure that program interventions are targeted to the populations most in need and are based on principles of human rights and equality in access to health, including a strong program focus on strengthened community systems through engagement with malaria volunteers (VMW/VHW/MMW/MMV/CHV);
  • To bring the unique insight of CSOs to malaria elimination efforts, and in doing so, provide a voice to affected communities.
