2021 Call for proposals
In 2021, L’Initiative will launch three calls for proposals.
Launched in late 2011, L’Initiative is a funding mechanism implemented by Expertise France as a facility that complements the Global Fund (GF). It provides technical assistance and supports innovation to Global Fund recipient countries in order to improve the effectiveness of its grants and reinforce the health impact of the programs it funds.
The countries eligible for L’Initiative’s support include the 19 priority countries for French public development aid. Recent changes within L’Initiative amplify its catalytic effect by building the capacities of health and civil society actors, by improving institutional, political and social frameworks, and by supporting innovative approaches to fight pandemics. L’Initiative has become a key element to the impact of the Global Fund. It has granted an unprecedented place to France and to its actors – researchers, civil society, public agencies - in the fight against the three most deadly pandemics and the strengthening of health systems.
For the year 2021, L'Initiative is launching three complementary but distinct calls for projects.

The project selection process has two phases.
During phase 1, projects will be pre-selected based on the letters of intent. During phase 2, only pre-selected applicants will receive the documents to submit full applications. Full applications will be reviewed and will then be presented to the Pre-selection Committee in October 2021.
