GPSA’s second round of grants for social accountability projects

Between November 2013 and January 2014 the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) launched its second Call for Proposals on Social Accountability for CSOs in 33 countries to win grants ranging from US$ 500,000 - US$ 1,000,000.

Civil Society Organizations from Moldova actively participated in the call for proposals, submitting a total of four proposals.  From this pool, the proposal “Implementing Participatory Social Accountability for Better Health”, submitted by Center for Health Policies and Studies from Moldova has been preselected as one of 8 finalists for a GPSA grant.

Selections were made by the GPSA Steering Committee, based on the reviews by a group of technical experts worldwide; and information on the submitted proposals, selection process and roster of experts can be found on the GPSA website. The GPSA received 428 proposals from 33 countries in this round.

Topics in COUNTRY

In Moldova, the GPSA Social Accountability proposals from CSOs addressed the following areas.

  • Monitor the results of the Healthcare System Development Strategy, particularly the indicators linked to hospital reform (including those related to optimization of hospital infrastructure as well as hospital efficiency and quality). The information produced will be used by the Ministry of Health to evaluate the progress made in the implementation of the Strategy and if necessary, design corrective measures to meet the targets.
  • Verify and report on the results achieved by health professionals under the performance-based incentive programs. The information produced by the intervention will be used by Moldova's National Health Insurance Fund (CNAM) and the Ministry of Health to monitor the results reported by the health professionals and to strengthen the performance-based incentive programs administered by CNAM.
  • Institutional strengthening activities and capacity-building through a “learning-by-doing” approach that will result in the CSO’s increased capacity to implement social accountability.

The public disclosure period of the proposals is now open
