Working Groups Seeking Online Curriculum Consultant

The Stop TB Partnership Working Group on New TB Vaccines (WGNV), Working Group on New TB Drugs (WGND), and New Diagnostics Working Group (NDWG) are developing an online course specifically designed for advocates and affected communities to provide a base of knowledge in TB research and to generate interest and engagement in TB research advocacy. The New Tools Working Groups (WGs) are seeking an online curriculum consultant/ writer for the course. The consultant will contract with the host organization for each of the WGs. 

The overall goal of this project is to develop an online curriculum that will provide participants with a basic working knowledge and understanding of issues in TB research for vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics, even with no prior knowledge and experience with TB research. The content will consist of basics aimed at advocates, individuals from affected communities and other stakeholders interested in new tool research and development. 

An RFP for the project can be found at this link

Proposals are due Thursday, December 31st, 2020
