About Challenge Facility for Civil Society
Supported by USAID and the Global Fund Strategic Initiative to Find the Missing People with TB, the Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) is the Stop TB Partnership grant mechanism for TB affected community and civil society grassroots organizations to transform the TB response so that it promotes and protects human rights and gender equality. Strengthening community and civil society actors is an ethical and programmatic imperative in this pursuit.

Tuberculosis is a disease of the shadows, entrenched in communities that have always struggled to make ends meet and lack many basic needs. People in these communities have increased exposure to TB because of a variety of risk factors, including: poverty, limited access to quality healthcare services, criminalization, and biological factors. These same factors of marginalization and inequity inhibit peoples’ right to the highest standard of physical and mental health and serve as barriers to accessing TB care and support services. And without quality care and treatment, the odds of surviving TB are substantially reduced.

For an equitable TB response that confronts these challenges CFCS supports community and civil society actors to engage in community-driven and high-level advocacy, to overcome the barriers in reaching services, and to monitor the TB response so that governments are accountable to the commitments they made in the UNHLM Declaration to end TB.
