TB REACH Wave 10 Proposal Review Committee Application

Stop TB Partnership’s TB REACH initiative seeks candidates to review Wave 10 proposals

TB REACH announces a call for candidates to join our Proposal Review Committee (PRC). Individuals actively engaged in the fight against TB are encouraged to apply. The TB REACH PRC reviews proposals to improve TB care delivery though innovation and new approaches.

Our area of focus in Wave 10

For this wave, we have an overarching theme of health systems strengthening (HSS) with project focus areas on either the expansion of the TB Preventive Treatment (TPT) or Integrated Service Delivery (ISD).

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), together with Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have provided funding to TB REACH that is eligible for the following 40 countries: Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, China, Congo, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mongolia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tajikistan, United Republic of Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Who we are looking for

Global health and/or development experts with knowledge of TB but with a strong background in designing, implementing, or evaluating TPT programs and/or Integrated Service Delivery (ISD) across multiple areas, including case detection, linkage to care, new treatment regimens and/or diagnostics, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), pediatric TB, artificial intelligence/ITC, laboratory systems, community and civil society engagement, and organizational capacity development. Additional experience in Health Systems Strenthening is also desirable.

TB REACH strongly encourages people who have lived experience with TB to apply for the PRC.

Applicants must be willing to dedicate time during May-June 2022 and August-September 2022 to review innovative proposals from a global set of change-makers and select those that will have the most promise to contribute to ending the TB epidemic.

Who we are

The Stop TB Partnership’s TB REACH initiative was established in 2010. TB REACH is a grant-making platform that funds innovative approaches and technologies to find and treat people with active TB disease, drug-resistant TB, or TB infection. Funded projects undergo rigorous monitoring and evaluation with the aim of linking impactful projects to long-term funding for scalability and sustainability.

What will the PRC do

PRC members will review hundreds of TB REACH applications remotely during May-June 2022 and during an in-person meeting in early September 2022 (dates and location to be determined) to recommend a final funding list to the Executive Committee of the Stop TB Board.
