    Geneva, Switzerland, World Health Organization [WHO], Division of Family Health, Maternal Health and Safe Motherhood Programme, 1992. [10], 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.

    New York, New York, United Nations Population Fund, 1988. xi, 477 p. (Population Programmes and Projects Vol. 1.)

    This is the 5th edition of the GUIDE to be published. A new edition is issued every 3 years.

Each entry for an organization describes its mandates, fields of special interest, program areas in which assistance is provided, types of support activities which can be provided, restrictions on types of assistance, channels of assistance, how to apply for assistance, monitoring and evaluation of programs, reporting requirements, and address, of organization. International population assistance is broadly construed as 1) direct financial grants or loans to governments or national and non-governmental organizations within developing countries; 2) indirect grants for commodities, equipment, or vehicles; and 3) technical assistance training programs, expert and advisory services, and information programs. To gather information for this edition of the GUIDE, a questionnaire was sent to more than 350 multilateral, regional, bilateral, non-governmental, university, research agencies, organizations, and institutions throughout the world.

    Resource guide to non-governmental organizations concerned with AIDS in Africa based in North America.

    Gowan A; Reining A

    In: AIDS in Africa: the social and policy impact, edited by Norman Miller and Richard C. Rockwell. Lewiston, New York, The Edwin Mellen Press, 1988. 311-25. (Studies in African Health and Medicine Vol. 1)

    Many non-governmental organizations based in North America have in recent years focused programs on HIV and AIDS. Some of these have had longstanding ties to Africa, particularly church-based and health-oriented groups or those who have worked on population, famine, refugee or child care issues. Others currently involved in African AIDS issues have been concerned specifically with family planning, education, communications or broad developmental issues. Many in the latter group are, in fact, new to work on the continent. This resource guide is divided into 4 parts. The 1st surveys a specific NGO sector, that of the family planning organizations in the US concerned with AIDS. The 2nd section provides brief descriptions of some US-based organizations concerned with AIDS. A 3rd section focusses on the NGO organizations based in Canada. A final section provides a list of multi-national organizations plus governmental offices in Canada and the US concerned with AIDS. These descriptions, it should be emphasized, are all based on a preliminary survey and are not meant to be exhaustive. (author's modified)
