KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation (KNCV) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against tuberculosis (TB). KNCV is the lead partner in Challenge TB (CTB), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded 5-year global project to decrease TB mortality and morbidity in high burdened countries. The overarching strategic objectives of Challenge TB are to improve access to quality patient centered care for TB, TB/HIV, and MDR-TB services; to prevent transmission and disease progression; and to strengthen TB platforms.

This scope of work concerns a core project as part of the Challenge TB project, entitled: Quantifying effect of interventions on transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Tanzania. The core project is led by KNCV and the American Thoracic Society (ATS). This Core Project aims to do an impact evaluation of USAID-supported TB control interventions in Tanzania. The evaluation will focus on the impact of interventions on transmission of TB. The project will be multiyear and community-based, and employ molecular typing of M. tuberculosis isolates of diagnosed TB patients and tuberculin skin testing of school children among others.

KNCV is soliciting proposals of a Tanzania based and registered research partner to implement this evaluation. The full scope of work, application process, and guidelines for developing proposals, eligibility criteria and evaluation criteria are available here:
