PHCPI Congratulates 13 PHC Advocacy Micro-Grant Awardees

At this critical moment for health systems everywhere, the PHCPI Secretariat is thrilled to award micro-grants to 13 organizations who are leading critical work to drive greater action, investment, accountability and improvement for strong primary health care in 2022. 

These 13 organizations were selected for PHC advocacy micro-grants out of more than 200+ impressive applications, and are leading a wide range of activities to drive progress in their communities, countries, regions and globally – from advocating for more and better PHC financing, to shaping campaigns and policies for high-quality, rights-based care, to ensuring that underrepresented communities are meaningfully engaged in decisions.

Ultimately, primary health care gets its power from being the level of the health system that is closest to the people — and therefore best positioned to understand and respond to communities’ unique needs. The same can be said for the frontlines of PHC advocacy: it is the local champions, experts, practitioners, and community leaders who can best pinpoint urgent gaps and opportunities in their context, and make the strongest case for the actions and investments needed to ensure PHC leaves no one behind. We are so excited to see what the rest of 2022 brings.

Join us in congratulating all awardees and learn more about their planned activities below.

The Alliance for Reproductive Health Rights (ARHR) is a women, children and adolescents’ health advocacy group. ARHR advocates for health systems strengthening and financing for equitable access to quality health care for all. With the support of this micro-grant, ARHR will campaign for increased domestic funding for primary health care within Ghana’s 2023 National Budget, as a key foundation for UHC and health security.
