What do we fund?

As part of the Hospital Partnerships initiative, the Health Partnerships – Global funding programme supports the transfer of knowledge and experience between health organisations in Germany and medical institutions in low and middle income countries.

What do we want to achieve?

Many institutions in the health sector in Germany already maintain peer-to-peer links and working relationships with health institutions in developing countries and emerging economies. We wish to support this engagement. Peer-to-peer partnerships build capacities and generate the fresh ideas needed to deliver demand-driven services to people in partner countries. The funding programme enables partners to implement these ideas in a way that sustainably improves health care for the people concerned.

Who can apply?

We support German organisations that wish to work with health institutions in a low or middle income country on projects that will improve people’s health care on the ground. Eligible to apply in Germany are non-profit and public health organisations, i.e. hospitals, non-profit enterprises, registered associations, non-governmental organisations and federations. On the partner side, the health institution involved must be linked to the public health system.

What kind of support do we provide?

We support your activities with up to EUR 50,000 over a maximum period of two years. If follow-on funding is approved, partnerships may receive additional years of funding. We usually publish a call for proposals twice a year. You may apply for funding for travel expenses, training costs and, to a limited extent, for materials and equipment, and administrative costs.
