Cervical Cancer Grants Program

TogetHER for Health is no longer accepting submissions to our 2023- 2024 Cervical Cancer Grants Program cycle. Awardees were announced in March of 2023.

We can’t end cervical cancer deaths without changing the way things are done, especially in low-resource settings. Catalytic support is needed to test innovative new strategies and to influence and inspire new programs that can help women around the world.

TogetHER’s Cervical Cancer Grants Program aims to provide small, highly targeted grants addressing demand and supply barriers that prevent access to the life-saving cervical cancer prevention services in low- or middle-income countries (LMICs). These catalytic investments directly improve the lives of girls and women and trigger systemic health improvements such as policy changes, regulatory approvals, and the development of tools and strategies adaptable across the health system.

TogetHER's most recent call for proposals accepted submissions from non-governmental organizations for its third round of funding through the Cervical Cancer Grants Program, allowing for two tracks for potential grantees:

  • Track 1 aims to improve demand-side interventions to increase uptake of all cervical cancer prevention services.
  • Track 2 aims to support supply-side interventions to accelerate adoption of improved technologies in cervical cancer prevention.

Each track awarded a single grant not exceeding $30,000 USD and were targeted to LMICs, particularly those with high cervical cancer disease burden. Program applicants needed to clearly state to which track they were applying. Activities demonstrating catalytic, systemic improvements for cervical cancer prevention were prioritized. Given the limited grant size, funding from Cervical Cancer Grants Program can only be used to complement existing funding for vaccination, or screening and treatment programs.
