The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) finances health programming in Uganda through two different sectors or Principal Recipients; the Government or public sector managed by the Ministry of Health and the Non-Government or private sector managed by TASO Grants Management Unit.
Prior to becoming a Principal Recipient, TASO was selected by the Uganda Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) of the Global Fund to coordinate Round 7, Phase 1 of the HIV/AIDS component in March 2010. After successful implementation of Round 7, TASO became the second Principal Recipient in 2012, coordinating the Malaria and Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) Round 10 grants.
In 2015, the Global Fund transitioned into a new funding model under which TASO coordinated the Malaria, HIV/Tuberculosis and Health Systems Strengthening grants. This ended in December 2017.
Following the last grant which ended in 2020, TASO was selected to implement HIV/TB activities according to the National HIV and Tuberculosis Strategic Plan 2020/21 -2024/25. It was also selected to implement the malaria reduction activities according to the Uganda Malaria Reduction Strategic Plan (UMRSP) 2021 - 2025. It is for this reason that the TASO Grants Management Unit (GMU) invites suitable indigenous Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to implement the proposed interventions together with District teams and Community Based Organisations (CBOs) in targeted districts.
