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.

The incumbent will report to the Country and Community Support for Impact (CCS4i) Team Leader, and serve the CCS4i team program officer for linking initiatives related to strengthening community systems, ensuring community leadership in the TB response, implementation of CRG tools and gender transformative interventions, raising awareness of human rights and improve program management. It includes but not limited to management and coordination of relevant program proceedings; ensuring timely deliverables, within scope and within budget; linking all program components together, including TGF SI grant; involving all relevant stakeholders for better coordination, including TGF and USAID.
