The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is seeking proposals from eligible entities for “Human Rights Initiative for access to quality TB services” to identify an organization that can map governments’ human rights obligations, document human rights linkages and obligations, develop health equity strategies, reform legal frameworks and litigation results for access to quality TB services.
UNOPS has hosted Stop TB Partnership Secretariat as of 1 January 2015. The Stop TB Partnership (“STBP”), under the direction of the Executive Secretary, is leading the way to a world without tuberculosis (TB), a disease that is curable but still kills three people every minute.
STBP, through this Call for Proposal (CFP), invites proposals from qualified organizations interested in receiving grant support for a project that will map 23 USAID priority countries, to identify where governments are obligated to ensure the human right of access to quality TB services and where those obligations are being met or not.
Eligibility criteria for this grant are:
- International/non-governmental organization or specialized institute.
- Demonstrated experience and expertise in:
- Access to Health care and Coverage Law and Policy
- Public health Law, Policy and Ethics
- Innovative solutions for the most pressing health concerns facing the nation and the world through research, scholarship, and reflective engagement with partners in the public and private sectors
- Litigation of health-related rights at the national, regional and international levels
- Presence and/or network to carry out the project activities in multiple countries.
- Good working relationships with key stakeholders in the TB space, including but not limited to governments, national TB programmes, TB affected communities and key populations e.g. migrants, prisoners, etc, and with UN Special Rapporteur on the right to health.
- Legal expertise or scholarship with first-hand experience in conducting systematic legal analysis of national and international legal frameworks. In-depth expertise and established research base on national and global health legislation and policies, including right to health accountability mechanisms.
