South Sudan Health Pooled Fund Phase 3

Crown Agents Limited

DFID’s mission is to help eradicate poverty in the world’s poorest countries. The priority objective for DFID's South Sudan department - with the international community - is to support peace, whilst recognising that prospects remain fragile and that even in a best-case scenario, continued protection of and support to the most vulnerable (particularly youth, women and children) will be essential for years to come. The focus of the DFID's South Sudan strategy is on sustaining high levels of humanitarian support and the provision of essential services, whilst looking for and supporting opportunities to embed peace. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has appointed Crown Agents to effectively manage and deliver the ‘Health Pooled Fund 3 (HPF3)’ programme in South Sudan. HPF3 will effectively merge two current health programmes - Health Pooled Fund 2 (HPF2), which provides healthcare at health facility level, and the Integrated Community Case Management 2 (ICCM2) programme, which provides healthcare to children under-five within more remote communities. DFID South Sudan is initiating a new five year HPF3 programme (2018-2023) which will follow on from HPF2 ending in October 2018 and ICCM2 ending in December 2018. This is a multi-donor programme with existing HPF2 donors (US, Canada and Sweden) expected to continue their support. The programme impact will be an improved health and nutrition status for the population that saves lives and reduces morbidity (including maternal, infant and under-5 mortality).

UK Aid Direct: A challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals.

MannionDaniels

Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), UK Aid Direct was established in 2014 as a successor to the Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF), which was created in 2010. UK Aid Direct is a challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals. The aim of UK Aid Direct is to fund small- and medium-sized national and international civil society organisations (CSOs) to reduce poverty and work towards achieving the Global Goals. Specifically, UK Aid Direct funding reaches the most marginalised and vulnerable populations, supporting the DFID agenda to ‘leave no one behind’. This agenda can be achieved through funding projects that encompass service delivery, economic empowerment, strengthening accountability or generating social change. As a flexible fund, UK Aid Direct is designed to be an adaptive and demand-led fund that responds to DFID priorities of:\n\n- Strengthening global peace, security and governance\n\n- Strengthening resilience and response to crisis\n\n- Promoting global prosperity\n\n- Tackling extreme poverty and helping the world’s most vulnerable\n\n- Delivering value for money

GCRF Accelerating Achievement for Africa's Adolescents Hub

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

OBJECTIVE 1: DISRUPT INTERGENERATIONAL CYCLES OF DISADVANTAGE FOR 20 MILLION ADOLESCENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN IN 34 AFRICAN COUNTRIES. The Hub's driving goal is to identify and support 'super-accelerator' combinations of services that promote adolescent wellbeing across multiple SDGs. We will use randomised trials, pilot trials and quasi-experimental analyses across East, West, Central and Southern Africa, testing combinations selected in partnership with national governments and adolescents themselves. We will place researchers within the UNDP and African Union with the explicit mutual objective of evidence input into national government planning processes. We will support ongoing and new initiatives with major donors and agencies including Gates Foundation, Global Fund and UNICEF, and we will work with NGO partners to provide open-access training and materials to practitioners across the region. OBJECTIVE 2: GIVE SENIOR AFRICAN POLICY-MAKERS THE EVIDENCE THEY WANT: COST-EFFECTIVENESS, ACCEPTABILITY AND SCALEABILITY WITHIN EXISTING SERVICE DELIVERY PLATFORMS. Our policy partners want research evidence that reflects the real-world of scaling up programs in Africa. They want to know cost-effectiveness and allocative efficiency for budget provisions. They want to know whether services are acceptable to adolescents, and the barriers and facilitators of scale-up within existing state and NGO platforms. For each super-accelerator finding, we will provide them with this evidence in accessible formats. We aim to kick-start global evidence-building of combination interventions for an integrated SDG response. OBJECTIVE 3: PROVIDE FREE, EFFECTIVE PROGRAMS AND TRAINING FOR PRACTITIONERS ACROSS THE AFRICAN REGION. All manuals of effective interventions, support materials, toolkits and training modules, all policy briefs, research tools and datasets will be made publicly available for non-profit use (web-based and print versions). We will work closely with implementation partner NGOs including Paediatric Adolescent Treatment for Africa, International Rescue Committee, Clowns without Borders and the International AIDS Alliance to provide training and materials for healthcare, education, social service and lay community workers in the 34 African countries where they work. OBJECTIVE 4: PARTNER WITH AFRICAN ADOLESCENTS TO CREATE SERVICES THAT ADDRESS THEIR PRIORITIES. Too many effective interventions have low adolescent buy in, acceptability, uptake and retention. The Hub will work closely with our adolescent advisory groups in Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda to design interventions with high acceptability, and delivery mechanisms that address their barriers and motivations. OBJECTIVE 5: CAPACITY-SHARING IN INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH. The Hub includes active capacity-building of 35 early-career academics in Africa and 10 in the UK, including 8 co-funded doctoral students and 5 master's students per year working on Hub-associated projects. Learning posts, training support and workshops will promote mutual capacity-sharing and skill-sharing across disciplines and regions. Civil servants will be invited to engage in training on cost-effectiveness modelling and receive mentoring for research skills. Our goal is to build a next generation of mutually-supportive African research leaders and policy-makers, who are committed to reaching the SDGs for adolescents and their children. OBJECTIVE 6: LEVERAGE ADDITIONAL EXTERNAL FUNDING TO MAXIMISE IMPACT FOR AFRICA. If awarded, the Hub already raised additional external co-funding of £12,968,213, as well as partner contributions of £2,526,889. Through these and more, we will maximise the Hub's impact during and beyond the GCRF's investment, and provide exceptional value for ODA money.
