Stop TB Partnership

UNOPS hosts the Stop Tuberculosis Partnership Secretariat (STBP) as of 1 January 2015, in Geneva, Switzerland. The vision of the Stop TB Partnership is to realize the goal of elimination of Tuberculosis (TB) as a public health problem and, ultimately, to obtain a world free of TB by ensuring that every TB patient has access to effective diagnosis, treatment and cure; stopping transmission of TB; reducing the inequitable social and economic toll of TB; and developing and implementing new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic tools and strategies. The Stop Partnership is uniquely positioned to support the development and further implementation by partners of the current and future Global Plan, acting as a coordinator and catalyst for the range of partners engaged in the fight against TB.

Founded in 2001, the Stop TB Partnership's mission is to serve every person who is vulnerable to TB and ensure that high-quality treatment is available to all who need it. Our partners include international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector

STBP works closely with the Global Fund (GF) to ensure that adequate investments are made in high TB burden countries in a manner that will maximize impact and the Global Fund TB grants are effectively used by countries to make rapid progress towards ending TB. STBP’s collaboration with the Global Fund will be enhanced with the addition of two staff positions in Stop TB Partnership designated as Stop TB Technical Advisors/Global Fund. This initiative will be supported by USAID.

These individuals will be Stop TB Partnership Full Time (FT) staff but will work closely with the Global Fund Secretariat, GF Regional Managers and their Country Teams (CT) and Heads of Department, as well as GF Disease Advisors and other GF personnel; with a geographic focus on one  to two regions.  The positions will also coordinate and work closely with USAID staff in Washington DC.  Working arrangements will be flexible and depending on needs. Approximately 20% of time is likely to be spent in Stop TB office, 40% of the time in Global Fund, and 40% in engaging with and traveling to countries.
