The AGP supports the training of health workers in low- and middle-income countries, through engaging established partnerships between health organisations in the UK and Ireland and their counterparts in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The aims of the AGP are to save and improve the lives of people living in Sub-Saharan Africa (in particular women and children), prevent disease in vulnerable populations and strengthen the health workforce in Africa. THET and J&J are particularly interested in projects which affect systemic change and contribute to sustainable outcomes and impact.

THET welcomes grant applications to strengthen the healthcare workforce in one of the following two areas:

  • Stream 1: Essential Surgical and Anaesthetic Care
    • This stream will focus on reducing morbidity and mortality from conditions requiring essential surgical intervention and/or enhancing patient safety as a result of improved anaesthetic care through the training of relevant health workers. The aim of this stream is to improve the access to, and availability of, quality surgery and/or anaesthetic care (particularly for maternal, neonatal or paediatric surgical conditions).
  • Stream 2: Community Healthcare
    • This stream will focus on increasing the availability and quality of essential healthcare (including attended births) and health information to underserved populations, particularly women and children, by training those who work and serve in the community. The stream will focus on the training of cadres working in the community (Clinical Officers, Community Health Workers, etc.), which is in line with the national strategy and policies in-country. Partners will work at the rural and district level, outside of the central hospital systems.

Geographic Focus

  • There are 13 priority countries for this round of the AGP.
  • THET will also consider exceptional applications from other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa where the project and partnership matches the criteria, though priority will be given to those working in the above countries.
