You can access all previous TB Europe Coalition Newsletters through this page.
Every month the TB Europe Coalition produces and disseminates an email newsletter to our entire membership. The newsletter is written so as to inform our membership, those working on TB and related issues, about civil society activities, policy and resource developments, and any other information that could be used to help with capacity building in the region.
For access to the newsletter archive from February 2014 – February 2015 please click here.
This page provides information on the latest funding opportunities available to countries in the region. For a quick guide to some of the key funding partners in the region please see our Fundraising Handout or below.
Funding from the Stop TB Partnership
One key area of the work of the Stop TB Partnership is to provide technical support to the process of developing stronger concept notes and country dialogues to increase the chances of getting funded.
The Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) is an instrument to promote the role of communities in National TB Programmes, and on other high-level platforms, especially in countries supported by the Global Fund.
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.
Stop TB Partnership awards Kochon Prize annually to individuals and/or organizations that have made a significant contribution to combating TB. The Kochon Prize, which is endowed by the Kochon Foundation, a non-profit foundation registered in the Republic of Korea, consists of a USD $65,000 award.
Funding from USAID
USAID have several grant programmes that may prove fruitful. For example, the Development Grants Program that seeks to support NGOs that have limited or no experience working directly with USAID, and to strengthen the capacity of these organisations.
Funding from the European Union
European Union: NGOs, CSOs and community based organisations are eligible for a EU funding, as they are involved in many areas covered by EU policies on a non-profit basis, a precondition for receiving funding from EU coffers. This includes issues around health. Funding is available both under direct access programmes run by the Commission as under programmes financed through structural funds, and available at the regional authorities. There will be an EU delegation in your country and so we would recommend getting in touch with them.

GIZ – German BACKUP Initiative
Germany: since 2002, the global health programme German BACKUP Initiative has been assisting applicant countries in using Global Fund grants more effectively and efficiently. The initiative was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and has been co-funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) since 2013.
