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.

Under the overall guidance of Head of Advocacy and Communications department and direct supervision of the Senior Communications Officer, the incumbent within the Communications and Advocacy section of the Stop TB Partnership will be responsible for development of STBP’s media relations, social media platforms, high level editorial content (articles, features, news stories, blogs) and other relevant outreach activities as required. This individual will be primarily responsible for providing expert media relations strategic planning and implementation, including leading media work to support programmatic, policy and campaigning priorities, and organisational activities globally and regionally.  The Media & Communications Officer’s work will play a central role in building awareness of and support for STBP’s and its priority issues in the media, both globally and in key target countries and within legislatures, governments and United Nations entities.  In addition, the individual will develop content for external communications (brochures, position statements, editorials, web-articles etc.).  High-level English editorial/writing skills are essential.
