Health Finance and Governance Activity
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)’s mission in Jordan is issuing this Funding Opportunity to solicit technical applications for a five-year Health Finance and Governance Activity whose goal is to improve health sector sustainability and resilience in Jordan, including achieving universal health coverage. This activity will apply a health systems strengthening approach to address structural and systems-related weaknesses within Jordan’s health finance landscape, as well as address gaps and deficiencies within the public sector’s health governance. The Health Finance and Governance Activity will build capacity through technical support, policy reform, and systems development – enabling the Government of Jordan (GOJ) to better respond to the demands that arise from continued regional displacement, population growth, and economic fluctuations. The Health Finance and Governance Activity will build on USAID investments in systems strengthening and public fiscal reform, while focusing new resources towards the achievement of the GOJ’s Universal Health Coverage goal. USAID encourages applicants to submit performance-based applications that present a logical, comprehensive, concrete, and measurable set of interventions to achieve the stated objectives and purpose.
Deadline: Apr. 19, 2016
Areas of Interest
The core objectives of this activity are two-fold:
1. Increased spending efficiency of public resources for health in support of the GOJ’s universal health coverage goal;
2. Strengthened governance of the health sector to more effectively coordinate, plan, manage, and monitor the health system.
All qualified U.S. and non-U.S. organizations (other than those from foreign policy restricted countries) are eligible to apply. Pursuant to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 200.400(g), it is USAID policy not to award profit under assistance instruments such as cooperative agreements, and as such, for-profit organizations must waive profits and/or fees to be eligible to submit an application. Forgone profit does not qualify as cost-share or leverage.
Subject to funding availability, USAID intends to provide $24.5 million in total USAID funding over a five (5) year period. The ceiling for this program is $24.5 million. Actual funding amounts are subject to availability of funds. USAID intends to award one cooperative agreement pursuant to this notice of funding opportunity.
