The Stop TB Partnership is leading the way to a world without tuberculosis (TB), a disease that is curable but still kills three people every minute. Founded in 2001, the Partnership's mission is to serve every person who is vulnerable to TB and ensure that high-quality diagnosis , treatment and care is available to all who need it.

Together our over 1700 partners are a collective force that is transforming the fight against TB in more than 100 countries. They include international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector.

We operate through a secretariat hosted by UNOPS in Geneva, Switzerland and seven working groups whose role is to accelerate progress on access to TB diagnosis and treatment; research and development for new TB diagnostics, drugs and vaccines; and tackling drug resistant- and HIV-associated TB. The secretariat is governed by a Board that sets strategic direction for the global fight against TB.

The Stop TB Partnership’s TB REACH initiative has launched its Wave 8 round of funding to boost private provider engagement in the fight against TB.

In the 8th funding cycle, TB REACH seeks new and scalable PPE models led by local organizations from the 24 priority countries (mentioned below) to better involve private healthcare providers to detect and notify more people with TB.

Applicants are encouraged to consider the use of technology, innovative social enterprise and other business models, as well as other bold strategies to increase the number of people with TB found, tested, and notified by private health care providers.

Project Categories - TB REACH awards grants across three broad evaluation categories:
1. Improving detection, linkage to treatment and reporting of TB;
2. Improving treatment adherence and outcomes;
3. Special Funding: Developing innovative resources and materials to aide service delivery.

Wave 8 will cover only the first of these three categories and will be specific to private healthcare provider engagement (PPE).
The project must aim to engage private providers with a significant impact on TB case finding outcomes. Interventions that make use of technology to connect with and between providers are encouraged, as are projects that create networks of different types of private providers or that build on existing facilities, networks, or institutions.
Proposals that aim to expand access to diagnosis and treatment of TB infection, identify and prevent dropouts in the care cascade, and/or enhance the uptake of new shorter regimens with the involvement of the private sector will also be accepted.
