TogetHER Announces New Funding Opportunity Through Cervical Cancer Grants Program

September 30, 2021

UPDATE: The submission period for the 2021 round of TogetHER’s Cervical Cancer Grants Program has closed as of October 29th. Successful applicants will be notified by Monday, November 22nd.

TogetHER is pleased to announce the launch of a new Request for Application, seeking proposals for our Cervical Cancer Grants Program.

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 is currently accepting submissions from non-governmental organizations for its second 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 will award a single grant not to exceed $25,000 USD and will be targeted to LMICs, particularly those with high cervical cancer disease burden. Program applicants should clearly state to which track they are applying. Activities that can demonstrate catalytic, systemic improvements for cervical cancer prevention will be prioritized. Given the limited grant size, funding from Cervical Cancer Grants Program should be used to complement existing funding for vaccination, or screening and treatment programs.

The Request for Proposals – including specific information on the types of programs funded, eligibility, requirements, and more can be found here.
