"Essential HRH elements in funding proposals", 2nd topic of The Exchange
Outcomes of the Second Alliance COP
The second discussion of the Alliance Community of Practice "The Exchange" took place from Monday 3 August to Wednesday 12 August 2009. The topic of discussion was: "Essential HRH elements in funding proposals". The aim of the discussion was to determine the essential questions that should be asked of Human Resources for Health interventions proposed within a grant application.
The interactive discourse looked at issues surrounding the determinants of whether a country-developed grant application demonstrates a well-developed, reasoned and evidence-based contribution to national human resource for health priorities. The discussion was divided into two questions:
- (Part I) 3 - 6 August 2009: Considering the HRH crisis in countries and from existing evidence and tools, what elements should be included in a country grant application?
- (Part II) 7 - 12 August 2009: From discussions in Part I, what are the essential questions that a reviewer or review team should ask prior to allocating funding awards?
The daily inputs from contributors were moderated by the Alliance and supported by expert advisors, a group of individuals involved in public health, funded projects and academia.
The Briefing note is now available below. Besides background and context information, it contains a "check-list" detailing the essential HRH elements that must be considered in any funding application and by any review team.
