Additional Information on Eligibility
Application for this program is limited to that organization previously funded under Program Announcement Number 02032: The MRC of South Africa for TB Control Activities. This limited eligibility is based on the key objectives of the program to develop and implement TB and HIV Controls, and allow the organization to carry out multiple, ongoing public-health research activities in South Africa. MRC is the only qualified agency that has the technical and administrative capacity to conduct the specific set of activities requested to support CDC TB and HIV activities in South Africa under this cooperative agreement because: 1) MRC is uniquely positioned, in terms of legal authority, ability, track record, and credibility in South Africa to develop and support control activities in both public and non-governmental organization sites through the country; 2) MRC has already established a framework and mechanism to develop and implement TB and HIV treatment and control activities in South Africa, enabling it to immediately become engaged in the activities listed in this announcement; 3) MRC has been mandated by the South African government to coordinate and implement TB treatment and control activities including MDR-TB and TB/HIV co-infection within the country; 4) MRC has a unique and unparalleled relationship with the Department of Health (DOH), national Tuberculosis Control Program (NTP) and HIV program and the South African National Tuberculosis Association (SANTA) based on a long history of collaboration; 5) MRC coordinates the research and development activities for the Global Alliance for TB Drug Development in the search for a better, more effective and affordable cure for TB that is shorter, equally effective against susceptible and drug-resistant TB, and accessible to the populations that need it most. HHS/CDC/NCHHSTP/DTBE entered into a cooperative agreement with the MRC in 2002 to help support and ensure implementation of TB control activities that are designed to develop, establish, and coordinate systems and procedures to address the obstacles to achieving control of TB and MDR-TB in South Africa. This cooperative agreement was supplemented in FY06 with PEPFAR funding to implement additional TB/HIV related activities
