Assessing impact of donor co-financing and transition policies on TB Commodity Procurement
Introduction and Overview
Curatio International Foundation recently started implementation of the project entitled: Assessing impact of donor co-financing and transition policies on TB Commodity Procurement. The project is financially supported by Stop TB partnership and UNOPS, initiated by Global Drug Facility (GDF).
The assignment will last 10 months and aims to assess positive and negative implications of The Global Fund’s (TGF) Sustainability, Transition and Co-Financing Policy (STCP) that may have on TB commodity procurement practices on a country level in EECA region.
Based on the goal of the assignment the project has the following objectives:
- Develop a methodological approach necessary for systematically documenting and assessing challenges and opportunities related to the TB commodity procurement practices arising from TGF’s STCP;
- Using the methodological approach and standard tools, systematically assess and document experiences related to TB commodity procurement practices during and after the transition in the countries that have graduated from TGF support or are already implementing STCP and paying for parts of TB commodity purchase.
After the successful completion of the project scientific article describing the key findings from the all assessed EECA region countries will be published in peer reviewed international journal.
The project findings will support countries to be aware of existing gaps and take appropriate actions for change.
