Letters of intent for TB REACH funding due by 8 November
TB REACH, an initiative of the Stop TB Partnership that aims to increase the number of people with tuberculosis (TB) who are found and provided with quality care, has launched a call for applications for its fourth wave of funding.
Applicants must submit a letter of intent (LOI) by 8 November 2013 to be considered for this wave of funding.
Partners of the Stop TB Partnership, national TB programmes, HIV programmes, local and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), civil society and community-based organizations can apply for this fast-track funding which encourages the use of innovative approaches among poor, vulnerable and at-risk populations.
Seventy-eight countries are eligible for wave four funding. Applicants can propose all types of innovative TB case finding interventions, however they are encouraged to focus on detecting TB in the following populations: mining-affected communities, migrants, children, incarcerated persons and indigenous populations and ethnic minorities. TB REACH will prioritize funding for applicants who can provide co-funding as well as those that propose scaling up interventions to a provincial or national level.
There will be a separate funding track limited to civil society and small domestic NGOs. This funding will be limited in scope but will provide small organizations with a chance to access TB REACH funds to support early and increased TB case detection and improved treatment outcomes in the communities they serve.
