UNOPS hosts the Stop Tuberculosis Partnership (STBP) Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland. The vision of the STBP 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 STBP is uniquely positioned to support the development and further implementation by partners of the Global Plan to End TB, acting as a coordinator and catalyst for the broad range of partners engaged in the fight against TB.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the National TB Program (NTP) of Kazakhstan are implementing important transformations in the TB care delivery system in order to expand people-centered approaches, improve the service performance and increase efficiency. While the Government is committed to allocate substantial financial resources for TB prevention and care, the ongoing structural reforms in the health care system, in particular, implementation of the mandatory health insurance, require further improvements in the financial planning, allocation and provider payment mechanisms, in order to ensure efficient and high-quality TB services.

Upon the request of the NTP and with funding and technical support from the United States’ Agency for International Development (USAID), the Stop TB Partnership will employ an in-country Advisor in Kazakhstan, who will work in the area of TB financing, allocation and provider payment mechanisms.
