  • Accelerating the Sustainable Control and Elimination of Neglected Tropical Diseases (ASCEND) ACCELERATING THE SUSTAINABLE CONTROL AND ELIMINATION OF NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASES (ASCEND) is a £200 million investment from DFID, to advance the impact and sustainability of national programmes tackling neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Implemented between September 2019 to March 2022, ASCEND comprises of two lots - one focusing on South Asia, East and Southern Africa (lot 1) and the other West and Central Africa (lot 2). ASCEND lot 1 is implemented by a consortium of technical partners lead by Crown Agents, including Abt Associates, Oriole Global Health and the Royal Tropical Institute. Central to the ASCEND Lot 1 approach is close collaboration with National Governments and other implementing partners, in order to enhance national approaches to NTD control and elimination, resulting in more integrated, cost-effective and sustainable programmes. We are working with 12 countries in eastern & southern Africa and Asia and are targeting the 5 NTDs, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, trachoma and visceral leishmaniasis, in each country as appropriate. The key results the consortium aims to deliver include: • Scale-up programme coverage and MDA treatments delivered in target countries • Provide surgeries to prevent cases of blindness due to trachoma • Reduce morbidity and disability of people with lymphatic filariasis • Early diagnosis and treatment of visceral leishmaniasis Total Project Budget: £33,814,197 DFID Funding: £4,932,830

  • Improving Public Financial Management and Accountability, Phase 2 (PFMA-2) PFMA2 will support reforms in government policies, systems and activities to improve PFM and revenue systems, and reduce opportunities for corruption in Government of Nepal (GoN) service delivery sectors that matter most for the poor. It will do this through the delivery of high quality analysis of fiduciary and corruption risks in key sectors in Nepal; support for the development and implementation of tailored sector PFM reform plans and activities; the provision of technical advice and capacity building on fiduciary and corruption risk mitigation and safeguards at the sectoral level; and support for embedded technical assistance and “hands-on” support in sector financial management and revenue administration reforms. PFMA2 builds on some elements of a previous programme (Deepening Public Financial Management and Accountability in Nepal) that supported PFM reforms within specific sectors (such as health, climate change, and peace and justice) and delivered analysis on fiduciary risks across the DFID Nepal portfolio.

  • South Sudan Health Pooled Fund Phase 3 DFID’s mission is to help eradicate poverty in the world’s poorest countries. The priority objective for DFID's South Sudan department - with the international community - is to support peace, whilst recognising that prospects remain fragile and that even in a best-case scenario, continued protection of and support to the most vulnerable (particularly youth, women and children) will be essential for years to come. The focus of the DFID's South Sudan strategy is on sustaining high levels of humanitarian support and the provision of essential services, whilst looking for and supporting opportunities to embed peace. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has appointed Crown Agents to effectively manage and deliver the ‘Health Pooled Fund 3 (HPF3)’ programme in South Sudan. HPF3 will effectively merge two current health programmes - Health Pooled Fund 2 (HPF2), which provides healthcare at health facility level, and the Integrated Community Case Management 2 (ICCM2) programme, which provides healthcare to children under-five within more remote communities. DFID South Sudan is initiating a new five year HPF3 programme (2018-2023) which will follow on from HPF2 ending in October 2018 and ICCM2 ending in December 2018. This is a multi-donor programme with existing HPF2 donors (US, Canada and Sweden) expected to continue their support. The programme impact will be an improved health and nutrition status for the population that saves lives and reduces morbidity (including maternal, infant and under-5 mortality). Total Project Budget: £445,900,265 DFID Funding: £55,592,665
