Stop TB Partnership’s TB REACH launches its Wave 7 round of funding 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.
DEADLINE APRIL 2nd, 2019
About the 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 the empowerment of women and girls in its Wave 7 call for proposals. The global response to TB has focussed far too little 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 caregivers 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.
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 the Application Resource page. We have also documented some stories from the field (find here a link to the work done 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.
