About the Project:
TB Challenge Round 7 – Tanzania This project is supported under the 7th round of the Stop TB Partnership’s Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) which is an innovative grant mechanism that supports the meaningful engagement of civil society organizations in activities aimed at TB elimination.
The overall goal of the round 7 is to build recognized civil society and community networks that represent, support and are accountable to communities who can partner with one another and successfully engage in national TB responses. The projects will take place in two phases. Phase I focuses on undertaking a resource mapping exercise to identify existing resources, coverage gaps, and perspectives of stakeholders about the quality of existing services. In Phase II, focusing on fostering collaboration with existing resources to identify key TB-related issues to bring to the national level, develop plans to fill the coverage gaps, and reassess the perspectives of the stakeholders about the quality of the newly developed / strengthened network. The overall project timeline is April to September 2017.
