Johnson and Johnson THET Africa Grants Programme (AGP) for health workers low- and middle-income countries


Deadline: 23 Feb,2020    Next term Starts:: 29 May,2020



The AGP supports the training of health workers in low- and middle-income countries, through engaging partnerships between health organisations in the UK and Ireland and their counterparts in Sub-Saharan Africa. The fourth round of the Africa Grants Programme will take a different approach from previous years, moving away from community healthcare to focus on essential surgery and anaesthesia for mothers and children. The focus of this round will be 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 for maternal, neonatal or paediatric surgical conditions.

THET welcomes grant applications to strengthen the healthcare workforce in delivering essential surgical and anaesthetic care to mothers and children in the following 8 countries:

  • Ethiopia
  • Ghana
  • Kenya
  • Malawi
  • Nigeria
  • Tanzania
  • Uganda
  • Zambia
