Stop TB Partnership

Wave 9

TB REACH Wave 9 call for proposals is open!

This wave of funding is focused on drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) and is made possible by the generous support and guidance from USAID with additional support from Global Affairs Canada.

Applicants submitting proposals in this wave must be local, non-governmental organizations from USAID TB priority countries. These countries are: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

In Wave 9, we seek proposals that will focus on one of three areas:

  1. Reduce pre-treatment loss to follow up for people with DR-TB.
  2. Implementation of all oral DR-TB treatment regimens.
  3. Improving treatment adherence and outcomes for people with DR-TB.

This is the first time TB REACH has used our platform to advance the DR-TB response, and we look forward to your proposals.

Applicants are encouraged to consider the use of technology, innovative models, as well as other bold strategies to improve linkages to treatment, increasing the number of people started on all-oral regimens, or improve the treatment success of people initiating DR-TB treatments. Coordination with national partners will be critical for successful applicants as no financial support for second-line drugs will be provided through the TB REACH grants.

Stage 1 Proposals will be accepted until 17:00 Geneva time, March 5, 2021. All proposals without exception, must be submitted through the online submission platform. For Wave 9, we will employ a two-stage process with an independent Proposal Review Committee selecting a group of applicants in April to continue to Stage 2 of the application process. Final funding decisions are targeted to be made by mid-July.

More details about the call for proposals is available on the Wave 9 Application Resources page.
