TB TEchnical Assistance Mechanism (TBTEAM)

TBTEAM, the Tuberculosis Technical Assistance Mechanism, with a secretariat housed in WHO, is the Global coordination mechanism for technical assistance for countries from among the global network of TB technical partners. It supports Global Fund grants by linking these partners to countries for proposal preparation, grant negotiation, implementation of grants, consolidation of plans across multiple grants, provision of technical assistance to address grant bottlenecks, and on- going grant monitoring.
