TB REACH was launched in January 2010 with multi-year grant support from the Canadian International Development Agency. TB REACH provides short-term and fast-track grants to projects that aim to achieve early and increased TB case detection using innovative approaches in populations that are poor and vulnerable and have limited access to care. Selection of projects is done via a competitive process by an independent Proposal Review Committee. To ensure the evidence of impact, an independent monitoring and evaluation agency is responsible for measuring progress and validating results. TB REACH has so far supported 109 projects in 44 countries through the first three waves of funding. The externally validated results of the first wave of funding shows an average 33% increase in case detection with a few projects even doubling the case detection within one year of implementation.

The fourth wave of TB REACH funding is likely to be announced in the latter half of 2013.
