5% Initiative: Access to Healthcare for Vulnerable Populations

Deadline: 6 March 2019

The 5% Initiative has launched a call for proposals to improve access to high-quality health services for vulnerable populations.

This call for proposals has been launched with a view to selecting projects that complement GF grants aimed at improving access for the most vulnerable populations to high-quality healthcare, based on strategies that are appropriate and integrated into local communities.

Access to healthcare is defined here as access to information, prevention and treatment.

Funding Information

  • The total amount of the grant funded by the 5% Initiative must cover 50% to 100% of the total project budget and will range between €250,000 and €2,500,000.
  • Applicants with an annual budget higher than €5 million must obligatorily include a co-financing in the budget. For the other applicants, project co-financing in the budget will be viewed positively.


Project duration must be between 24 and 36 months.

Target Beneficiaries

The following vulnerable populations should be prioritized as project beneficiaries:

  • Key populations
  • Populations particularly exposed to health risks linked to the three pandemics, especially those living in very isolated areas, such as fishermen and -women and farmers.
  • Mobile and migrant populations
  • Women and girls
  • Children and adolescents

Eligibility Criteria

  • In order to apply for a 5% Initiative grant the applicant must:
    • be a legal entity with a head office in an eligible country, or France (e.g. to have bylaws registered in an eligible country, or France) and
    • propose a partnership approach (project implementation involving more than one organization) and
    • include at least one partner from each of the implementation countries and
    • must not have bylaws that would not permit Expertise France or any external auditor appointed by Expertise France to perform checks and verifications on site and enjoy an appropriate right of access to sites and premises where the project is to be conducted, including their IT systems, and access to all documents and computer data relating to the technical and financial management of the project.
  • Local organizations in eligible countries can submit a project as prime applicant.
  • International Organizations may participate as technical support providers but may not be prime applicants nor receiving funding from the 5% Initiative. This provision does not apply to Regional Organizations.
  • For the present call for proposals, each organization may apply only once as prime applicant (lead organization). However, an organization may be part of more than one project as partner.
  • A partnership approach means that the prime applicant involves the partners in the design of the project and that the partners have responsibilities in the implementation of the project, with the management of funds linked to activities.
