WASH Innovation Challenge Exploring the Barriers to Inclusion Faced by People Living with Incontinence: Apply by June 23: Expired

WASH Innovation Challenge IncontinenceAbout:

In humanitarian settings, because of the additional trauma, stress and potential injuries, the prevalence of incontinence is likely to be significantly higher.

Incontinence is a complex health and social issue that is often overlooked in humanitarian settings. In stable high-income contexts, this health issue is reported for one in four women and one in ten men (Giles-Hansen, 2015).

The aim is looking to understand the experiences of people living with incontinence and the barriers they face to inclusion in WASH humanitarian programming: including needs assessments, program design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

Projects will be at the Problem Recognition stage of the innovation process and will aim to provide a comprehensive and developed understanding of the barriers to inclusion faced by people living with incontinence in a specific humanitarian context.

Area of work:

Water, sanitation & hygiene

Funding amount:

Approximately £30,000 to £70,000 per project (total funding available: £100,000)

Eligibility:

Applications are welcome from any legally registered entity (eg, INGO, NGO, UN, academic, private company). Successful applicants must work in partnership with a humanitarian actor.

Wherever it is possible, applicants should develop meaningful partnerships with local organisations to support implementation; in particular, with local humanitarian actors and civil society groups [organisations of people with disabilities (OPDs) and older people’s associations (OPAs)].

Any partnerships can be indicative at the Expression of Interest (EOI) stage but must be formalised when your full application is submitted if your proposal is shortlisted.

How to Apply:

To apply for the Challenge, fill out the Expression of Interest (EOI).

The application deadline is June 23.
