About this information

In June 2016, as part of the Open Government Action Plan, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) committed to increasing the transparency and usefulness of grants and contribution data and subsequently launched the Guidelines on the Reporting of Grants and Contributions Awards, effective April 1, 2018.

The rules and principles governing government grants and contributions are outlined in the Treasury Board Policy on Transfer Payments. Transfer payments are transfers of money, goods, services or assets made from an appropriation to individuals, organizations or other levels of government, without the federal government directly receiving goods or services in return, but which may require the recipient to provide a report or other information subsequent to receiving payment. These expenditures are reported in the Public Accounts of Canada. The major types of transfer payments are grants, contributions and 'other transfer payments'.

Included in this category, but not to be reported under proactive disclosure of awards, are (1) transfers to other levels of government such as Equalization payments as well as Canada Health and Social Transfer payments. (2) Grants and contributions reallocated or otherwise redistributed by the recipient to third parties; and (3) information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act.

Agreement: P009493001: Improving Basic Health Care and SRH for Populations Affected by COVID-19 (7423181 P009493001) (Nov. 10, 2020 - Sep. 30, 2022)
Description:

The project supports a programming that offers primary health care incorporating sexual and reproductive health (SRH), including gender-based violence (GBV).

The project aims to improve the health of populations, especially women and girls, by broadening primary health care service coverage, which includes SRH, in regions with the highest concentration of internally displaced persons in Burkina Faso. Two areas of focus are anticipated: (1) ensuring access to primary health care and sexual and reproductive health services in the context of COVID-19; and (2) ensuring that the intervention’s target population uses the available services.

COVID-19 considerations are incorporated into the health services to help address the needs of the population, particularly women and girls, and thus promote and maintain access to quality health care and continued use of the services.

Expected Results:

P009493001: The expected outcome for this project include: (1) health institutions have medications and medico-technical equipment, including improved local capacity of laboratories, facilitating the delivery of quality health care and SRH care; (2) local community networks have the capacity to organize community orientation and engagement sessions on attitudes and behavioural changes in the face of epidemic diseases, particularly COVID-19; (3) women and adolescent girls receive psychosocial and material support to prevent gender-based violence in the context of COVID-19; and (4) the health system in the targeted regions is strengthened and is involved in implementing monitoring activities designed to detect and combat priority illnesses and conditions, including COVID-19.

Description:

February 2020 - The crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is characterized by inter-ethnic conflict and widespread human rights abuses, including sexual violence. In 2020, 15.6 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in the DRC, a 22% increase from 2019, and 2020 expects additional population movement, creating significant needs in protection, livelihoods, and food security. Currently, the DRC is home to the second largest food crisis, with almost 16 million people severely food insecure. In addition, it is home to the largest internally-displaced persons (IDPs) population in Africa with 5.01 million displaced people. These needs are exacerbated by the ongoing Ebola outbreak, increased violence, and the forced return of hundreds of thousands Congolese refugees.

With GAC’s support, Action Against Hunger (ACF) is providing assistance to address the urgent needs of up to 68,337 conflict-affected people in the Mweso Health Zone in the DRC.
