Call for proposals for a study on: The role of Bridging the Gaps in strengthening civil society: best practices in capacity development

Launched in 2011, Bridging the Gaps is a key populations programme focused on the health and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, including men who have sex with men (MSM), people who use drugs (PWUD), and sex workers. The programme is implemented in 15 countries, by nine alliance partners: Aidsfonds, Aids Foundation East West (AFEW), COC Netherlands, Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF), Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP), International Network of People Who Use Drugs (INPUD), International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC), and Mainline.

Capacity development of civil society organisations is one of the strategies to contribute towards achieving the programme’s goals, and we are therefore looking for an academic partner to conduct a study to identify and document the current best practices in this field. We are seeking proposals that utilize community-based, participatory methods to gather and analyze data and disseminate findings. Interested institutes must demonstrate experience conducting evaluation research and working in equitable partnerships with communities. The terms of reference and the qualification requirements are provided below. Interested academic institutes meeting the qualification requirements are invited to apply and send their application package before 12:00 CET on Monday, 16 October 2017 to Ellen Eiling

Documents to be included when submitting the proposal:

  1. The research proposal (Maximum 4 pages), outlining the proposed research methodology, tools and approaches for analysis of data. A one page timeline should also be included.
  2. CVs of researchers to be involved, including past experience in similar research projects and providing contact details for two references (Maximum 2 pages per CV).
  3. Financial proposal (Maximum 1 page). Detailed financial proposal, including number of days, daily rate and clearly stating the total amount (incl/excl VAT) up to a maximum sum of €250.000. Institutes with the possibility of bringing in their own, additional funds will receive priority.
