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.

With the support of Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and USAID Stop TB is leading the way to find the missing millions and to eliminate TB as a public health problem. Stop TB’s Global Plan to End TB provides a road map for countries to end TB, outlining what is required to achieve the goals set out in the post-2015 Global TB Strategy.

The Plan includes eight areas which require a paradigm shift – a change in mindset; a human-rights and gender-based approach to TB; inclusive leadership; an approach driven by communities and people affected by TB, innovative programmes; integrated health systems; innovative and efficient approaches to funding; and, investment in socio-economic aspects of the TB response.

Guided by the Global Plan to End TB, Stop TB is committed to supporting countries and communities.  The roster of consultants will specifically support Stop TB’s Supporting Countries and Communities for Impact team to provide technical assistance to national programs, implementers and community and civil society organizations to embed: Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) strategies and interventions into national strategies and activities.
