Unitaid Call for Proposals: Preventing Deaths from Cervical Cancer in LMICs

Deadline: 20 June 2018

Unitaid has announced a new Call for Proposals for the area for intervention: Optimizing management of coinfections and comorbidities in people living with HIV.

Specifically, Unitaid seeks to accelerate access and scale use of optimal tools for cervical cancer secondary prevention in low- and middle-income countries.

The objective of this call for proposals is to identify projects that can address access barriers, catalyse the market for, and support adoption of improved tools for managing the disease at the pre-cancer stage, thereby reducing the increasing death toll due to cervical cancer in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) in general, and in particular in HIV-coinfected women. By making the global and country response to early detection of cervical cancer more efficient, Unitaid will be contributing to the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem, as called upon by WHO in this World Health Assembly, May 2018.

Scope

Under this call, Unitaid is soliciting proposals for the following interventions with a view to advancing innovative cervical cancer screening and treatment tools, enabling the paradigm change for screening and treatment programs in LMICs:

  • Catalyzing a market for optimal products for cervical cancer screening and treatment in LMICs by addressing access barriers (market entry, affordability) for the most promising new technologies (molecular tests, other new tests and self-collector devices, point-of-care (POC) treatment devices);
  • Supporting introduction of these products in selected early-adopter countries through integrated approaches, and identifying the most effective delivery channels to support future scale-up and maximize impact and value-for-money.

Eligibility Criteria

The applicant(s) may be:

  • A public or private entity / institution / organization; or
  • A consortium: a group of public and/or private entities / institutions / organizations with one entity / institution or organization acting as the Lead Organization (“LO”), The LO shall assume responsibility, for the project presented in the proposal and shall be the sole signatory of any subsequent legal agreement with UNITAID setting out the terms and conditions of a grant. The LO will be exclusively responsible for undertaking all negotiations and discussions with UNITAID and shall ultimately remain responsible for all results and deliverables under the legal agreement, including those to be accomplished by other consortium members.

How to Apply

Proposals must be submitted electronically at the address given on the website.
