IMPLEMENTATION OF TB CASE-FINDING ACTIVITIES UNDER NFM 3 OF THE GLOBAL FUND

In 2014, the Global Fund introduced a new funding approach which they called the New Funding Model (NFM) for all recipients of Global Fund resources, of which Stop TB Partnership Ghana is one. The new Funding Model took effect and lasted for three years after which it was renewed and this has been the practice since then.

Stop TB Partnership Ghana was a Sub-Recipient from 2015 to 2017, the first NFM. In NFM 2, which was in existence from January 2018 till December 2020, Stop TB Partnership Ghana engaged 90 NGOs in case finding at the community level.

The STOPTB won the bid to partner with the Christian Health Association of Ghana, in implementing Global Fund NFM 3 TB case finding activities.  This covers the period of January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2023. In NFM3, Stop TB Partnership Ghana has engaged 97 NGOs, which culminates into 970 community volunteers, to provide TB services to members of hard-to-reach communities across the country. The NGOs were set to work in 110 districts and 15 regions across the country.

Pre-Implementation Meeting (March 2021)

Having clearly known the implementing partners that will be working under STOPTB, the Partnership in collaboration with CHAG organized a one-day pre-implementation meeting. This activity took place on March 4, 2021 at the GNAT Hall Conference room in Accra.

This meeting was attended by a large number of the implementing partners of STOPTB and a delegation from CHAG, led by their Deputy Executive Director, Dr. James Duah. The Secretariat staff of STOPTB and some board members were also there to coordinate the event. The scanned attendance sheets have been attached to this report as a separate document.

The purpose of this meeting was to:

  • orient all implementing partners of the implementation strategy by STOPTB for NFM 3.
  • engage all implementing partners to understand how collaborations between CHAG and STOPTB will be in NFM 3.
  • discuss with all implementing partners how reporting will be done in NFM 3.
  • to help implement partners review work done in NFM 2 and appreciate achievements made.
  • engage all implementing partners in reviewing and understanding the new Memorandum of Understanding between STOPTB and all Implementing Partners that will be used in NFM 3.

Distribution of Personal Digital Assistants for Data Collection and Transmission (July 2021)

As part of the strategies to enhance timely and accurate collection and submission of real-time information from the field by volunteers that will inform all relevant stakeholders about the state of the major project indicators such as the number of persons screened, number of eligible persons tested for TB, number of TB+ cases found and number of TB+ patients placed on treatment, CHAG, in collaboration with STOPTB procured Personal Digital Assistants for all NGOs under STOPTB. These devices will be used to collect and send information about project indicators to the STOPTB Data Portal and the CHAG Vantage data system.

Budgetary restrictions did not allow for the procurement of the PDAs on a one-volunteer-one-PDA basis. The number of PDAs that were procured were based on the assumption that each of the 97 NGOs working under Stop TB Partnership Ghana would be given 5 PDAs each to work with, and therefore 485 Samsung Tab 8.0 Tablets (5 Tablets * 97 NGOs) were procured and distributed to all 97 NGOs.

Distribution of Motor Bikes

In order to enhance sputum transportation from the hard-to-reach communities where they are collected to the health facilities for testing purposes, Stop TB Partnership Ghana, with support from the Global Fund through the Christian Health Association of Ghana, procured and distributed 45 motorbikes to 45 NGOs. Since budgetary restrictions could not allow for the procurement of motorbikes to all 97 NGOs, the motorbikes were given to NGOs who were working in the harshest of communities with respect to accessibility to vehicles.

Stop TB Partnership Ghana
Stop TB Partnership Ghana1 week ago
He has become a tower in the fight to eliminate TB in Ghana and is steadily becoming an international force to reckon with. For some of us, you are a brother, a mentor, and your leadership is an inspiration that keeps us going. You are a goal-getter and that makes you shake even the delicate tables to get results. Time will not allow us now to chronicle your success stories especially when you were the Board Chair. But two of them are very fresh in our minds - the successful formation of the TB Caucus in parliament and the subsequent revitalization, and then you oversaw a historic Annual General Meeting to climax your exit from the board of the Partnership. On this special day, may the Lord continue to bless and keep you to win the fight against TB and many more battles in life. Cheers to your new age Sir!
