USAID Broad Agency Announcement: Improving Urban Health in Asia

Deadline: 24 March 2017

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications from the eligible organizations and companies for its Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for “Improving Urban Health in Asia”. It seeks, through co-creation with local partners, systems approaches to overcoming urban health challenges in Asia.

Achieving meaningful health outcomes in the growing number of urban centers of Asia requires an accurate understanding of the outcomes that matter to all segments of the urban population. This cannot be achieved without leadership and investment from local government institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector, nor can these outcomes be sustained over the long term without this local buy-in.

Urban health, in particular, also requires collaboration far beyond the health sector to achieve lasting health and well-being. Asia’s dynamism and development trajectory demands a shift in thinking beyond traditional development programming. Change agents—ranging from conventional thinkers to disruptive innovators—abound in Asia, providing partnership opportunities that can speed the development curve for health. USAID seeks to partner with these change agents to catalyze new ways to solve problems in urban health.

Focus Themes

  • Development programming that builds resilient and responsive health systems while maximizing sustainable impact on system performance and population health outcomes; this supports the larger agency goal of reducing poverty and managing maternal mortality, child health, and infectious disease threats.
  • Harnessing the evidence base to better understand sustainable solutions to health system challenges;
  • Enabling information sharing across Asia by building the institutional capacity of regional networks; and
  • Exploring intersections with other technical areas and partnering with the private sector to maximize potential for impact.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Idea/Approach
  • Partnership Expectations and Values
  • Cost considerations/Co-financing
  • Ability to Participate
  • Diversity of Perspectives and Capabilities
