Pooled Fund Grantees for 2021/2022


Hear from the grantees

The grant will add fuel to the already established transformation programme in West Java. The target is to achieve a transformed and strengthened health system that is feasible, cost effective, equitable, culturally-appropriate, and correspond to the community needs.
Diah Saminarsih

Founder, Center for Indonesia's Strategic Development Initiatives

With the addition of funding from AVPN Philanthropic Pooled Fund, IRC will be able to maintain and strengthen our primary healthcare systems to mitigate the effect of covid 19 on the treatment of other diseases as well as effectively respond on covid-19 pandemic through infection prevention that’s going through in refugee camps.
Dr. Zarni Win

Senior Clinical Manager, International Rescue Committee

The AVPN grant would allow IIRR to intensify its Covid response. It would enable us to develop and implement a more sustainable community-managed Covid risk reduction and response system that aims to reduce Covid 19 local transmission through promotion of health and nutrition practices; better access to primary health care and strengthened capacity of local health workers. The unrestricted nature of the grant would empower IIRR to prioritize and allocate resources where it is needed most; providing resources, assistance and trainings based on the need and identified required capacity gaps of the community; to strengthen and increase organizational and partners’ human resource that amplifies programmatic efforts to increase community resilience.
Emilita Monville Oro

Acting Director for Asia and Philippines Country Director, IIRR
