This project aims to reduce illness and death from tuberculosis (TB) in low-income countries by supporting TB REACH, an initiative of the Stop TB Partnership. TB REACH provides grants to partners for testing innovative approaches which aim to increase the number of people diagnosed and treated for TB, decrease a patient's time to start appropriate treatment, and improving treatment success rates in key populations and communities with limited access to care. It combines fast-track, results-based financing, and external monitoring and evaluation to produce results, so other donor agencies and national governments can scale-up successful approaches, and maximize their own investments. Project activities include: (1) funding of projects which deliver innovative and gender-sensitive approaches for TB diagnosis, treatment and reporting; (2) providing guidance and tools for monitoring activities, and evaluating impact of funded projects; (3) delivering technical assistance to improve the outcome and impact of project activities; (4) supporting analysis of project data and disseminating results; and (5) aiding in the development of national TB strategic plans while advocating for inclusion of successful approaches funded by TB REACH.

Expected results 

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (1) Improved TB case detection & care services, especially for women, children, and other key populations; and (2) Increased adoption and/or scale up of successful innovative programming approaches for TB case detection and care services, especially for women, children, and other key populations.
