  5. 5. • Sept 2018: Administrator’s announcement of Accelerator: “USAID will work directly with nearly 50 local entities within TB priority countries to provide accessible services, resulting in increased diagnosis and treatment success rates.” • December 2018: USAID A&A Strategy – First guiding principle is Diversifying the Partner Base “The concentration of our portfolio in so few hands does not adequately serve the Agency, our partners, our beneficiaries, or U.S. taxpayers. We commit to shifting this trend by engaging new partners and investing more holistically in local entities, as well as locally established partners that catalyze resources toward partner countries’ Journey to Self-Reliance.” • Specific reference to partnership with local organizations including FBOs on TB in the Administration’s FY2020 budget request, and again in recent Administrator testimony at Congressional budget hearing. • In line with these priorities, the LON APS is an opportunity to facilitate missions to reach their goals for the TB Accelerator and USAID JTSR more broadly, by creating a fast track mechanism for direct partnerships with local organizations including FBOs to implement locally-generated solutions to improve TB services while empowering local stakeholders in TB priority countries. • International NGOs and FBOs have a role with working with sub-recipients to strengthen and complement their capacity. 5 TB Local Organization Network Funding Opportunity

Goal: Further reduce malaria deaths and substantially decrease malaria morbidity towards the long-term goal of elimination Objective 1 Reduce malaria mortality by one-third from 2015 levels in PMI focus countries Objective 2 Reduce malaria morbidity in PMI focus countries by 40% from 2015 levels Objective 3 Assist at least five PMI focus countries to meet the WHO criteria for national or sub-national pre-elimination Shared Vision: A World Without Malaria 9

  11. 11. Vital Role of FBOs in Achieving PMI’s goals We recognize that as countries continue to make progress towards malaria elimination, the work of faith-based organizations (FBOs) will become even more vital in reaching hard to reach communities. FBOs embody local ownership, capacity building, and sustainability. Their roots often extend to the deepest levels of societies. Religious leaders, along with their well-established networks of volunteers and community groups, play pivotal roles in promoting and sustaining positive changes in the social norms, attitudes, and behaviors of their communities, which affect malaria elimination outcomes. And, in many of PMI’s partner countries faith-based organizations provide malaria treatment services at health facilities they own. Thus, PMI wants to engage FBOs to facilitate greater partnership in, as well as ownership of, malaria control efforts at the community level.
  12. 12. Resources Available To find the MOPs: 1. Go to www.pmi.gov. 2. Under the Resource Library, select “MOPs”. 3. Search by country and fiscal year.. The PMI website contains information about how and where we work, recent news, information about our partners, and past and present malaria operational plans (MOPs).
