"Healthy Families - Healthy Environment"


» The Integrated Partnership


Population Action International (PAI) is an international non-governmental organization that uses research and advocacy to improve access to family planning and reproductive health (RH) globally. Its mission is to ensure that every person has the right and access to sexual and reproductive health, so women and families can prosper and live in balance with the earth, reducing poverty and the depletion of natural resources. PAI is based in Washington, DC and operates globally in partnership with international and in-country partner organizations.  


PAI recently launched a new Gates Foundation funded project—The Integrated Partnership (TIP)—which will be implemented in five focus countries in Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania and Nigeria. The purpose of the project is to leverage financial and political commitment for integrated RH and HIV/AIDS programming. As part of this initiative, PAI is seeking interested civil society organizations operating in the project countries to partner with PAI in advocating for RH/HIV integration within influential global institutions including, the U.S President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Global Health Initiative (GHI) and the Global Fund, as well as the Ministry of Health and local government.


Because PAI has different advocacy targets in each project country, this request for proposals (RFP) specifies the advocacy targets for Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia, where PAI would like to partner with civil society organizations to advocate for HIV/RH integrated services within both PEPFAR/GHI and the Global Fund.


Based on the guidance provided in the attached RFP, we invite interested organizations to submit a proposal for a TIP small grant. PAI will provide a grant to no more than three grantees per country for a period of 18 months. The maximum amount for a small grant is 35,000 USD per organization; proposed budgets should not exceed this amount. The Grant Application Form and Self Capacity Assessment Checklist are also attached and should be completed and returned by the proposal deadline. Please submit your proposal no later than Friday, January 28, 2011 at 5:30 pm Eastern Time. Proposals should be submitted to Erika Larson at PAI (


Please read the guidelines and eligibility criteria in the RFP carefully before completing the application form. If you have any questions or need additional information related to this RFP, please contact Erika Larson at


We kindly request your organization to disseminate this RFP widely to potential and interested civil society organizations which operate in the project focus countries.
