EU4Health call for proposals for operating grants to non-governmental organisations (NGOs)

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) play a key role in the field of health at EU and local levels. While they serve patients directly, they also help to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including cancer, by focusing on important health determinants, such as exposure to second-hand smoke, rare diseases, aging society, and poor lifestyle choices.

To support NGOs in implementing the objectives of the EU4Health programme, HaDEA has launched the call for proposals for operating grants to non-governmental organisations under the 2024 EU4Health Annual Work Programme.

Organisations receiving these grants will:

  • Raise awareness on various health aspects through health literacy and promotion, communication and dissemination, capacity building, and networking activities;
  • Contribute to the optimisation of healthcare activities and practices by providing feedback from patients and facilitating communication with patients;
  • Facilitate the exchange of knowledge and cooperate with other civil society organisations and international organisations.

Estimated budget: €9 000 000

All interested parties are invited to send their applications by 31 January 2024 17:00 (CET).

Learn more and apply on the Funding and Tenders Portal.

A dedicated info session will take place on 12 December 2023.


EU4Health, with a budget of €5.3 billion, is the fourth and largest of the EU health programmes. The programme provides funding to national authorities, health organisations and other bodies through grants and public procurement, contributing to a healthier Europe.

HaDEA manages the vast majority of the total EU4Health budget and implements the programme by managing calls for proposals and tenders from 2021 to 2027.
