Wave 5 Scale Up Projects

The Stop TB Partnership’s Coordinating Board approved continue support of eight successful Wave 5 projects through TB REACH’s ‘Transition to Scale Up’ Grants Framework that funds innovative approaches to fight TB. In Wave 5, TB REACH awarded 38 projects in over 20 different countries each using different and innovative case-finding approaches. The projects underwent a rigorous monitoring and evaluation process to determine their impact on finding and treating the missing people with TB. After a year of implementation, the projects were offered a chance to apply for scale up funds. Subsequently, eight projects were selected that demonstrated a population-level impact and a capability of scaling up of their innovative approaches, for a total fund value of around USD 6.3 million.
