Following the successful implementation of the TB REACH Wave 6 grant under Stop TB Partnership, InnovationsCH was awarded a scale-up grant allowing them to resume the operations of Kalinga Health in Marikina City for an additional year and to expand and build another SEM (Social-Enterprise Model) center within Metro Manila.
This gives InnovationsCH another opportunity to implement its innovative model targeted towards the private sector. The organization, with ACCESS Health International Philippines (primary recipient), is currently in talks with a city within Metro Manila to pitch it as the second evaluation site for the project.
With only half the year left, InnovationsCH and AHI Philippines are looking forward to further increasing case detection and notification within the region. The project is expected to end on March 2021.
