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.

As a key initiative of the Stop TB Partnership, the goal of the Global Drug Facility (GDF) is to facilitate world-wide, equitable access to TB medicines and diagnostics across both public and private sectors. This goal is achieved through management and coordination of market activities for the full portfolio of TB medicines and diagnostics, strategic procurement and innovative logistics solutions, technical assistance and capacity building for TB programmes in better pharmaceutical management practices, and accelerated uptake of new TB medicines, regimens, and diagnostics using the GDF “launch pad”.

Country Supply Officer (CSO) is key to ensuring uninterrupted access to TB medicines and other products to all patients in the GDF client countries. Under the supervision of the GDF Country Supply Team Leader and in close collaboration with the GDF Procurement Agent and Regional Technical Advisors, CSO will act as a portfolio manager for selected priority high-burden countries to design and coordinate a system for rational medicines and products ordering and delivery; establish proactive systems for forecasting, quantification, orders and supply management; promote early warning systems to avoid stock-outs and waste of medicines; maintain and update country profiles and dashboards.
