Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) was established by the Stop TB Partnership in its Global Plan to Stop TB 2016-2020. This approach challenges the traditional biomedical approaches to TB and calls for integrated and comprehensive responses to TB that are patient-centred and include strong partnerships with communities and civil society. To support community engagement and full partnerships with civil society and community organizations the Stop TB Partnership provides grants to technically sound and innovative interventions through the CFCS. EANNASO was awarded the grant for CFCS Round 7 and 8 to be implemented between 2016 to May 2019.
