Request for Application 2022-047 | Africa-Based Digital Health Entrepreneurs to Expand Tools for Community Health

With funding from the Bayer Foundation, the Digital Health Ecosystem Project (DHE) will support the sustainability and expansion of digital tools for health by changing how they are built, deployed, and scaled. We will foster a global network of independent teams collectively building on a common open source platform. By doing so, developers will have a proven, economically viable, digital foundation for their applications. More importantly, health care workers will have the tools to improve the quality, speed, and access of equitable care to their communities.

In support of the DHE’s efforts, we invite African businesses, organizations, and social entrepreneurs with software, content, and/or services to respond to this RFA. If you are an entrepreneur who wants to support community health workers and provide services to ministries of health, through this RFA we offer grants up to US$100,000 to support your ability to better serve ministries of health, community health workers, and their beneficiaries.

These grant funds will go toward:

  • Adapting and rolling out of Medic’s Community Health Toolkit (CHT) alongside your current service offerings.
  • Supporting you in your digital/technical and organizational capacity strengthening goals.
  • Connecting you to a global community of practitioners using the CHT to expand available offerings for your business.
  • Expanding your current product offering by leveraging the CHT, specifically for entrepreneurs located and/or supporting work in Kenya and/or Uganda; or entrepreneurs with demonstrable relationships with the MOH in their country of work.
  • Developing their organizational capacity according to their priorities, including initiatives that unlock new grant funding opportunities from bilateral, multilateral, and private philanthropic donors.
  • Supporting national MOHs and country-specific coalitions working to scale nationally approved community health information systems built on the CHT.
  • Gaining exposure to local government buyers of digital tools, as well as other purchasers in the global health community. 

Application deadline: October 10, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. EDT
