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.

A lack of financial resources, coupled with outdated policies, has hampered the response to the TB epidemic. These obstacles can only be overcome through political commitment.  In response, the Stop TB Partnership led a successful campaign for governments to hold a United Nations High-Level Meeting (HLM) on TB.

The High-Level Meeting is the biggest and best opportunity to raise the political priority of TB. It is the most significant political meeting ever held on TB. The meeting will result in a Political Declaration on TB endorsed by Heads of State that will form the basis for the future TB response.

Under the supervision and guidance of Stop TB’s Team Leader, Advocacy and in close collaboration with the Stop TB Executive Director and other members of the team, the incumbent within the Communications and Advocacy section of the Stop TB Partnership will support the Stop TB Partnership’s advocacy work on the UN HLM on TB and the overall strategy of the Stop TB Partnership.
