The United States Agency for International Development in the Philippines (USAID/P) seeks proposals from local Filipino non-profit or for-profit non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other qualified local organizations to assist the Philippines in the prevention and control of tuberculosis (TB). This Request for Applications (RFA) will help the Philippine government attain its vision of a TB-free Philippines and its goal of halving the TB prevalence and mortality rates from the 1990 baseline figures as part of its commitment to the 2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This can be made possible by helping the country reach a national TB case detection rate (CDR) of 85 percent and a treatment success rate (TSR) of at least 90 percent.
The TB Control Project will engage both the public and private sector nationally and in the project sites in detecting and successfully treating TB cases. Project sites are those identified provinces and cities with the greatest burden of TB disease and having the least performance in both case detection rate and cure rate (CR) and in consideration of priority areas set by the Department of Health (DOH). The impact of program activities and interventions will be measured against a set of national program indicators and targets. The TB Control Project will complement USAID/P‘s and other partners‘ health programs. Program activities will be aligned with the principles of the United States Government (USG) Global Health Initiative (GHI), the USAID Forward Goals, and Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS).
Under the USAID/Philippines‘ health strategy, there are three goals that the TB Control Project will work to achieve: Goal 1 – Demand for primary care services strengthened through encouraging adoption of appropriate healthy behaviors within families; Goal 2 – Supply of services improved, including the availability and quality of public sector services and selective expansion of the private sector as primary care supplier, improved; and Goal 3 – Policy and systems barriers to improve supply and demand for services removed.
