The purpose of this call for proposals is to ensure universal access to the prevention and treatment of the three pandemics (HIV, TB and malaria) for people in vulnerable situations, or those at risk of infection or disease, is an essential element of the Global Fund’s strategy to end HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Pregnant women, newborns, children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable groups for these diseases.

This CFP aims to support operational research projects aimed at testing innovative strategies to improve the access, quality and efficiency of integrated services for prevention, early detection, care and support for HIV, tuberculosis and malaria for women, children and adolescents.

  • Pregnant Women and Newborn Infants
    • Develop and test HIV, TB and malaria screening strategies for pregnant women and newborns in maternal and child health services for appropriate (preventive, therapeutic or curative) management, by facilitating their integration at decentralized level, particularly in very remote areas.
  • Children
    • Develop and test strategies to improve screening and access to care for children (care, support and treatment) for the three diseases – especially through community-based approaches – and identify factors that promote or impede the link with starting and continuing treatment.
    • Develop and test service delivery models to improve the health status of children along the HIV/TB/malaria care continuum (screening and access to care), in particular through the integration of all care within the platform dedicated to maternal and child health.
  • Adolescents
    • Develop and test effective follow-up strategies to improve adolescent adherence and retention, and identify factors affecting their success by minimizing disruptions in access to education and care.
  • Health Systems
    • Identify family-centered community strategies for detection of HIV, TB and malaria to facilitate early entry and retention in the care continuum.
    • Develop and test strategies to strengthen collaboration between health centers and the community providing primary health care services to mothers, children and adolescents to combat HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.

Implementing this type of research requires close collaboration between all partners, researchers, managers and staff of health programs and services, civil society and local communities. The aim is to ensure that the best strategies are identified to improve access to prevention, diagnosis and care for patients and their families, and that they are put into practice in health policies and systems based on reliable data that respects the values, preferences and rights of patients.

NB: In this document they refer to tuberculosis to mean both active and latent TB.
