Palliative Care Development in Africa: Accepting Applications for Microfinance Program

Deadline: 1 September 2018

Trustees of the TrueColours Trust have set aside funds for a microfinance program for hospices and palliative care providers across Africa to support the development of palliative care.

Nominations and funds are administered by the African Association for Palliative Care (APCA).

Funding Information

  • The funding is mainly allocated to one-off projects, with a duration not exceeding one year.
  • The sum of the funds allocated is between £ 500 and £ 5,000.

Funding Priorities

  • Administrators prioritize their support for projects that directly improve the patient experience and standard of palliative care for people of all ages. Priority is given to the following projects, without order of importance:
    • Training Course for Palliative Care Providers in Africa (Applicants must provide a curriculum / overview of topics to be covered, Curriculum Vitae (CV) of trainers, complete the training template and provide the name of the accreditation body. The grant will be awarded after receipt of the letter of admission from the training institution for those applying for courses)
    • Equipment for patients (eg beds, wheelchairs). For the equipment, we will need at least three quotes attached to the application, with the preferred quote and the reasons that justify this choice.
    • Projects that support palliative care services (which may include the purchase of toys, or the integration of pediatric services into existing programs, or the development of advocacy materials, etc.)
    • Medication.
    • Capital improvement costs (such as renovating buildings to improve the patient experience, buying furniture, etc.)
    • The development of small projects for palliative care (the integration of palliative care elements, the adaptation of palliative care models, the improvement of the quality of the activities, with for example the respect of the palliative care standards, the equipment development, etc.) and helping palliative care providers to establish new palliative care projects where they do not yet exist.
    • Improving access to palliative care in rural areas.
  • Funding will not be granted for:
    • Attend conferences
    • Training courses outside Africa
    • Work in general with children and young people that does not comply with the WHO definition for palliative care
    • salary costs since multi-year grants are not taken into account.
    • Per diems or funds for individuals or governments.
    • Only registered hospices and / or palliative care providers in any health care system can apply.
    • Given that multi-year funding is not accepted, directors will not normally fund salary costs.
