Geneva, Switzerland, World Health Organization [WHO], Division of Family Health, Maternal Health and Safe Motherhood Programme, 1992. , 75, viii p. (WHO/MCH/MSM/92.7)WHO's Maternal Health and Safe Motherhood Programme asked the Appropriate Health Resources and Technologies Action Group (AHRTAG) to compile this directory of organizations willing to provide funding to nongovernmental organizations to either strengthen existing maternal health and safe motherhood programs or implement such programs in developing countries thereby improving maternal health. The introduction gives general background information about the Safe Motherhood Initiative and explains how to use the directory. The directory lists the agencies willing to provide support by country. It also has a section on each agency listing the address; telephone, telex, and FAX numbers; types of projects each agency is willing to support; information on funding (grant size and length of project requirements); and conditions for support. The directory provides a section with general guidelines on how to prepare a project proposal to be submitted to the listed organizations. For example, it stresses that the proposal should be concise and short and include the following: summary of no more than 1 page in length, organizational background, statement of need, aims and objectives, strategy/workplan, monitoring, evaluation, and budget. The Appendix lists organizations that did not respond to AHRTAG's survey.
Zimbabwe AIDS directory -- 1995: non-governmental organisations, AIDS service organisations, support groups, funders, resources.
Harare, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe AIDS Network, 1995. ix, 126 p.As the AIDS epidemic has unfolded in Zimbabwe, a number of organizations have developed AIDS programs for awareness and prevention and to help people cope with HIV infection. This Directory aims to provide information on the nongovernmental organizations (NGO), AIDS service organizations, support groups and donors involved in AIDS work in Zimbabwe. It also identifies information sources and materials available internationally, particularly those available free or at low cost, and with special relevance for Africa. Entries are listed alphabetically by name and acronym. It is hoped that the Directory will assist many organizations within the NGO community and beyond to identify resources and improve links with sister organizations, donors, and others responding to the demands of the AIDS epidemic. Most importantly, it is hoped that it will help people directly affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS to gain better access to services and support.
