LHSS grants are one part of LHSS's approach to strengthen sustainable host country health systems capacity. Through grants under contract, LHSS engages with local institutions and organizations to build their capacity, developing their administrative and management capabilities to compete for and implement direct awards from USAID and/or other clients and donors. This work represents an essential aspect of sustainable health systems strengthening at the local level.
The LHSS grants program is designed for non-governmental organizations (NGOs), not-for-profit and for-profit private entities, and local partner government organizations. NGOs are organizations that act neither in governmental capacity nor as agents of the government. Both U.S. and non-U.S. NGOs and private commercial entities are eligible to receive grant funding. LHSS accepts grant applications from not-for-profit and for-profit organizations as well as government entities (for in-kind grants only).
LHSS Ukraine is inviting eligible firms/ agencies to submit proposals for the development and implementation of the information campaign “Telemedicine in Ukraine”. Following a landscape analysis, it has become evident that there exists a crucial knowledge gap among doctors regarding the implementation of telemedicine services and among patients regarding their accessibility. Aligned with the Ministry of Health of Ukraine's Strategy for Telemedicine Development, LHSS Ukraine aims to address this gap by popularizing of knowledge and awareness of the population of Ukraine about the benefits and opportunities of telemedicine. Offerors’ proposals will be accepted until March 5, 2024. Eligible proposals will undergo evaluation and scoring against specified criteria, leading to the selection of the most compelling offeror for this impactful initiative.
The expected results of the information campaign are as follows:
- A positive image of telemedicine has been created, the level of awareness and awareness of key stakeholders about telemedicine as an accessible, effective, and safe way to receive medical care has been increased
- Publications, news, and materials were created and distributed among target audiences in accordance with the project plan.
