TB REACH, an initiative of the Stop TB Partnership to promote early and increased TB case detection, anounces a call for applications for Wave 3 funding. Partners of the Stop TB Partnership, national TB programs, HIV programs, local and international NGOs, civil society, and community-based organizations can apply for this fast-track funding for early and increased TB case detection among poor, vulnerable and at-risk populations.
For Wave 3, TB REACH will have two separate funding tracks:
(1) General Wave 3 Track: This funding track is open to applicants from 86 eligible countries. This track is for one-year projects for up to US $1 million to improve TB case finding. Applicants can propose all types of innovative TB case finding interventions, however they are encouraged to focus on detecting TB in the following populations depending on the local epidemiologic context and setting: people living with HIV, children, miners, migrants, incarcerated persons, and people with diabetes or COPD.
(2) UNITAID Xpert Track: This funding track is open to applicants in 19 countries who wish to implement Xpert MTB/RIF scale up interventions using innovative approaches.
In three of these countries (Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Pakistan) there will be a specific focus on sustainable public-private partnership approaches using a social enterprise model that will be organized and supported by Interactive Research and Development (IRD) in collaboration with the national TB program and applicants should consult IRD to develop their application. In the other 16 countries all approaches will be considered provided applications meet eligibility criteria and are accompanied by a letter of support from the national TB program. Grants under the UNITAID Xpert Track are for two years and for up to US $1 million. Proposals should focus on rolling out Xpert MTB/RIF technology to improve case finding. Applicants should note that for this funding track proposals may only allocate a maximum of US $1 of TB REACH funds for every US $1 of Xpert equipment and consumables proposed for use in a project over the entire two-year period.
