The Ugandan Academy for Health Innovation and Impact - Grants Management System


The Ugandan Academy awards its first funding to sub-grantees

The Ugandan Academy for Health Innovation and Impact, as part of its Strategic Plan, has set aside funds to address gaps in clinical care, health systems and research through partnership with established agencies that work in the area of HIV, TB, maternal and child health.  In line with the Ugandan Academy’s mission, this collaboration is meant to be with organizations that have innovative approaches to care so as to drive lasting improvements in health. 

In August 2016, the Ugandan Academy’s issued its first call for proposals from organizations implementing health interventions for people affected by HIV and TB.  This RFA attracted an impressive number of applicants and of these, six organizations received grants for between US$20,000 and US$220,000 (approximately Ugandan Shillings 71m and 790m).  The six included three NGOs, two CBOs and one Academic institution (see full list of sub-grantees here).    

In March 2017 the sub-grantee organizations were invited to the Infectious Diseases Institute to receive orientation on managing the funds that had been entrusted to them.  Various forms of capacity support have already been given to these institutions and support supervision by the Ugandan Academy team will continue throughout the project period.  In a press event that marked the ceremonial handover of the grants to the awardees, the Academy Board Chairman Prof. Elly Katabira spoke about the importance of investing in research on HIV and TB in order to provide quality of care, and noted that the variety of projects funded ensured a multifaceted approach.  He noted that “It is important that these projects include hard to reach areas as well as vulnerable populations”. 

An organization that is interested in this type of collaboration with the Ugandan Academy can review these guidelines to the RFA process or seek further information from the Ugandan Academy at the Infectious Diseases Institute Knowledge Centre in Makerere University.
