Special Announcements

 

USAID
Agency for International Development
Ebola Response, Recovery and Resilience in West Africa
Call for Partnership Concept Papers
RFA-OAA-15-000027

Concept paper deadline:
Sept. 15, 2015
This is an addendum to to an existing announcement published last year. So interested organizations should refer to both the addendum and the full announcement:
Original full announcement: Global Development Alliances (GDA) download from this webpage >>
Current addendum*-downloaded from this webpage >>
Eligibility: Stanford faculty with PI eligibility. See the guidelines for all eligible organizations.
Purpose: This call for concept papers focuses on Pillars II and IV of the USG strategy—mitigating second-order impacts and fortifying health security infrastructure:
-Second order impacts are defined as economic, social or political consequences that go beyond the direct impacts of Ebola-related illness and caregiving.
-Global health security infrastructure
includes information technology and other critical infrastructure needed to prevent, detect and rapidly respond to infectious disease outbreaks.
Key efforts:
The objective of this Addendum is to leverage ideas, capacity and resources from private sector entities** to launch specific interventions aimed at accelerating recovery and building resiliency in the West African communities affected by the Ebola epidemic. In line with the above strategy, Concept Papers should propose partnerships designed to support the following key efforts:

  • Strengthen local health systems
  • Advance global health security
  • Accelerate social mobilization and protection programs to enable local communities to lead the recovery process
  • Develop and deploy information communications technology (ICT) tools, infrastructure and data systems to expand abilities to prevent, detect and respond to future threats
  • Improve basic education and workforce development
  • Increase economic activity by strengthening trade, investment and infrastructure
  • Rapidly increase electricity access in underserved areas

**Private Sector entities:
Through this announcement, USAID seeks to develop alliances with the private sector (including but not limited to African and multinational corporations, financial institutions, chambers of commerce, industry associations, foundations, entrepreneurs, investors and other private sector organizations) that improve outcomes in the priority areas mentioned above.

In addition, while alliances must be based on significant private sector engagement, collaboration and resource contributions, alliances are strengthened by incorporating the expertise, experience and resources of academia (including African and U.S. universities), think tanks, NGOs and a broad range of civil society organizations and initiatives, including U.S. and non-U.S. non-governmental organizations and communities of faith.

They should focus on the determinants and interactions of transmission among humans, non-human animals, and/or plants.
Proposals for research on disease systems of public health concern to developing countries are strongly encouraged, as are disease systems of concern in agricultural systems.
Investigators are encouraged to develop the appropriate multidisciplinary team, including for example, modelers, bioinformaticians, genomics researchers, social scientists, economists, epidemiologists, entomologists, parasitologists, microbiologists, bacteriologists, virologists, pathologists or veterinarians, with the goal of integrating knowledge across disciplines to enhance our ability to predict and control infectious diseases.
