With funding from the UK Government, we are implementing the Human Development Innovation Fund (HDIF) in collaboration with GRM International Limited, the managing agent of the programme. This is a £30 million, 5-year fund designed to encourage innovation and support the scale up of promising approaches in the education, health, water and sanitation sectors, to achieve improvements in the quality and value for money of basic services. HDIF is catalysing the development and testing of new models of service delivery, the use of new technologies, the involvement of new providers and the establishment of new partnerships, with a focus on the private sector and public-private partnerships.
Specifically, IDAS setup HDIF grants management systems and is currently providing technical assistance in grants management, financial management and internal controls to ensure that HDIF grantees deliver results effectively. In the latest annual review undertaken in February 2016, HDIF was rated A+. The programme whose implementation commenced in 2013 is set to be completed in 2018.
