TB REACH’S WAVE 7 CALL FOR PROPOSALS IS OPEN!

Deadline April 2, 2019

women-300x200 News

LET’S EMPOWER WOMEN TO LEAD THE FIGHT AGAINST TB!
TB REACH’s Wave 7
round of funding aims to improve TB case finding and treatment outcomes with an emphasis on the empowerment of women and girls to lead key approaches in TB response.
If you have innovative ideas, you want to be part of the historical movement to #EndTB and you are eligible to submit a Stage 1 application, we encourage you to apply!

What is in Wave 7?
In Wave 7, TB REACH focusses on the empowerment of women and girls through innovative TB programming. We seek proposals that illustrate:
Groundbreaking approaches and technologies to implement preventive therapy, improve TB case detection and/or treatment outcomes including through the engagement of the private sector (see Concept Note).
AND:

  • Create more leadership and empowerment opportunities for women;Engage women in proactive mobilization of their communities, including their partners and their children, for TB screening and to improve treatment outcomes;
  • Empower women to play an active role in formal health decision making;
  • Improve education, career development opportunities for women and/or girls;
  • Employ women as peer educators, organizers, and as community partners;
  • Increase case finding among women, especially in marginalized groups;
  • Integrate TB with other health services e.g. family planning, maternal and child health, HIV, malaria, NCDs, immunization programs;
  • Incorporate other ideas that promote the empowerment of women and girls through TB programming

About Wave 7 Funding.
A trailblazer in funding TB case-finding and treatment adherence efforts, TB REACH is taking on TB and gender inequalities as well as supporting empowerment of women and girls in its Wave 7 call for proposals. The global response to TB has been dictated by the disease epidemiology, resulting in a lack of focus on women. Although more men contract TB than women, women and girls are more likely to suffer from extreme poverty, be illiterate and malnourished, and have less access to health services, educational and economic opportunities. Moreover, women are the main care givers to children and men who have TB. Women make up the majority of the paid and volunteer health workforce in almost all TB high-burden TB countries.

While other TB-sector donors focus efforts on advocating for gender-responsive TB programming, a focus on empowerment of women and girls has never before been a priority area in TB. Through Wave 7, TB REACH aims to tackle serious gender challenges at the level of communities in order to meet the goal of ending TB.

Where to get more information.
We have created a Wave 7 Concept Note, and the Framework for Empowerment of Women and Girls in TB REACH grants to support applicants in developing their proposals. Please refer to these materials and to the Application Resource page. We have also documented some stories from the field (from an organizations in India) to highlight how TB programs can contribute to women’s empowerment.

Who can apply?
We welcome proposals from all eligible organizations and partners, but particularly want to encourage domestic organizations, and women’s organizations that are working in communities on broader gender issues to apply.

How to apply?
TB REACH uses a two-step application process: Interested organizations and partners submitting a Stage 1 proposal which will be reviewed by an external Proposal Review Committee. Successful Stage 1 applicant will then be invited to submit a Stage 2 proposal. We hope to announce final funding decisions in August 2019.

The Stage 1 application submission deadline is 2 April, 2019 at 17:00 Geneva time.
All Wave 7 proposals must be submitted via the online application website.
Applications submitted via e-mail will not be accepted.
For questions about Wave 7 funding or the application process, please contact: tbreach@stoptb.org

KCM-NGO ANNUAL CONSULTATIVE WORKSHOP (15.02.2018)

Since the creation of the Global Fund over 20 years ago, our partnership has achieved what was once considered impossible. Efforts by communities, governments, civil society, the private sector and global health partners have resulted in extraordinary progress in the fight against HIV. Globally, new HIV infections declined by 38%, from 2.1 million in 2010 to 1.3 million in 2022.

The COVID-19 pandemic pushed us off track. While 2022 saw us recover our momentum, vulnerable groups, especially children and adolescent girls and young women, and other key populations are still being left behind. In 2022, only 57% of the children infected with HIV globally were getting the lifesaving treatment they need, compared with 77% of adults; this meant that 660,000 children living with HIV were not receiving antiretroviral therapy, leading to 84,000 deaths. Adolescent girls and young women (aged 15-24 years) are still at high risk of HIV, despite improvements over the past decade, accounting for 210,000 new infections in 2022. In sub-Saharan Africa, adolescent girls and young women are more than three times as likely to acquire HIV as adolescent boys and young men.

HIV and AIDS by the Numbers:

Funding

  • The Global Fund provides 28% of all international financing for HIV programs.
  • We have invested US$25.5 billion in programs to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS as of June 2023.
  • We have invested US$4.6 billion in TB/HIV programs as of June 2023.

Prevention

  • 15.3 million people were reached with HIV prevention services in 2022.
  • 710,000 HIV-positive mothers received medicine to keep themselves alive and prevent transmission of HIV to their babies in 2022.

Testing and Treatment

  • 24.5 million people on antiretroviral therapy for HIV in 2022.
  • 53.1 million HIV tests were taken in 2022 in countries where the Global Fund invests.
    • 12.2 million of these HIV tests were taken by priority and key populations, including infants, adolescent girls and young women, adolescent boys and young men, gay men and other men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, people who inject drugs, people in prisons, and other vulnerable populations.

MALARIA-BANNER-300x144 News
STOPhiv-2-300x138 News

Kenya has severe, generalized HIV epidemic, but in recent years, the country has experienced a notable decline in HIV prevalence, attributed in part to significant behavioral change and increased access to ART (antiretroviral drugs).

OVERVIEW

Kenya has been a pioneer in numerous global health innovations – from self-test kits and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to malaria vaccine and child-friendly TB medicines. The country has had great success in putting people on HIV treatment, hitting the 1 million mark in 2017, up from 98,000 in 2006.

Strong community-based work, including the empowerment of women coupled with a strong partnership between Kenya and international partners, has helped bolster the response to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Devolution of management of health from the national to the local level since 2013 promises to transform the way health care is managed and delivered in the country.

Despite that progress, Kenya still faces challenges in the response to HIV, TB and malaria, and in building resilient and sustainable systems for health. With 1.5 million people living with HIV in the country, Kenya has the fourth-largest HIV epidemic in the world. At about 78,000, the number of new HIV infections per year remains high. As for TB, the country is one of the 30 high-burden countries that together account for more than 80 percent of the world’s TB cases. Drug-resistant TB remains a big challenge in the country. Malaria remains a major cause of sickness and death, with more than 70 percent of the population at risk of the disease.
