Deadline: 4 December 2017
The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) through the Global Drug Facility (GDF) is accepting proposals from qualified organizations to assess and analyze the current TB diagnostics market landscape.
The procurement of TB diagnostics and related laboratory commodities by GDF has increased significantly in recent years, justifying the need to assess and analyze this market to allow GDF to better evaluate and refine its role as the global market coordinator under the Stop TB Partnership.
Grant Proposals must not exceed USD 240,000. Any amount over the ceiling must be co-financed by the selected organization.
Scope of Work
The scope of work of this grant aims to support the development and publication of TB diagnostics market analyses, including but not limited to technology landscape analyses and studies specific to different diagnostic tools and technologies and/or priority country or countries. Concretely, the proposal should include at least:

- Five (5) TB diagnostics technology- or country(ies)-specific studies that address challenges with patient access, coverage, country capacity and/or roll-out. Deliverables would be in the form of manuscripts ready for publication, with co-authorship by Stop TB Partnership’s GDF.
The minimum eligibility criteria are:
- Not-for-profit international or national non-governmental organizations or academic institutions.
