TB REACH is intensifying its collaboration with the US Government on multiple fronts and most recently, TB REACH leveraged its funds to secure a “1 to 2” match with the Global Fund and USAID/Challenge TB to support the scale up of an impactful private sector engagement program in Bangladesh. TB REACH has supported the project since its inception in 2013 and its evolution represents a significant achievement as it sets the Bangladesh program on a clear path to transition away from TB REACH funds (in 2018). It is the first time USAID has directly invested in scaling up a project initially supported by TB REACH and also represents a TB REACH first type 3 project (see TB REACH’s ‘Transition to Scale Up’ grants framework . In addition, USAID committed USD 3 million to Wave 6 projects that focus their interventions on engaging private healthcare providers.
