SUMMARY

JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., with partner Open Development, implements the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Tuberculosis Implementation Framework Agreement (TIFA) Project, with National TB Programs in 23 priority countries around the globe. Fighting TB is a top priority for the U.S. Government. As a part of USAID’s Global Accelerator to End TB, TIFA increases country ownership and accountability to accelerate countries’ progress toward TB eradication. 

TIFA is a five-year project (2019–2024) that supports USAID Mission efforts to strengthen host government commitment in the fight against TB. To achieve this, TIFA and National TB Programs—or other local entities, when requested by USAID—develop and negotiate fixed amount awards, known as TB Commitment Grants (TCGs). TIFA uses an efficient phased approach with country partners to develop TCGs. National TB Programs and USAID identify country priorities; TIFA then works closely with them through a grant co-design process.  TB Commitment Grants are implemented by National TB Programs—completed milestones are submitted to and verified by USAID and TIFA.  TB Commitment Grants provide capacity strengthening opportunities for National TB Programs to manage their national response.
