NCD Alliance Solidarity Fund #2
1st August – 31st December, 2021
The Trinidad and Tobago NCD Alliance (TTNCDA) is among 19 civil society alliances, from Africa, Asia, Europe, Eastern Mediterranean and Latin America and the Caribbean, awarded a grant to accelerate the response to the coronavirus pandemic through the Civil Society Solidarity Fund on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) and COVID-19.
The TTNCDA is using the grant to increase and strengthen the capacity of its membership and to develop a strategic plan and resource mobilization strategy. These are key components of institutional strengthening for the Alliance to be more proactive in advocating for the prevention and control of NCDs and their risk factors.
The second phase of this Solidarity Fund aims to help Civil Society make the case for prioritising and investing in NCDs within the context of an equitable COVID-19 response and recovery. The 2021 Solidarity Fund has been made possible thanks to generous financial contributions of NCD Alliance’s supporters: The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, Access Accelerated, AstraZeneca, ECOBANK Foundation and Viatris.
