Through calls for proposals, UNITAID seeks new ideas that enable organizations and governments to scale up their responses to health challenges. After rigorous analysis and vetting, UNITAID funds the best proposals that offer value for money and potential for real global-health impact.

The programme may support the following works:

  • Facilitate adoption of new medicines to displace current suboptimal treatment
    • Work to incorporate the new formulations into countries’ TB strategies, supply planning, forecasting and treatment protocols; accelerate regulatory approval and registration of new products in-country, where required.
  • Expand access to better TB medicines to reach more children in need
    • Support integrated delivery approaches to reach more children with TB, for example by: leveraging active case-finding strategies; developing and piloting innovative methods of demand generation and integration of TB into other health care services for children, including private sector; developing innovative approaches or strategies to improve detection or reporting of TB in children (including application of diagnostic tools and strategies in innovative ways), with a focus on approaches that could be implemented within the next two years.
