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 committed to provide universal access to modern treatment of all forms of TB including the use of new and repurposed anti-TB drugs and revised treatment regimens for patients with drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) in line with the latest WHO recommendations. In 2019, the Government of Kazakhstan started procurement of quality-assured TB drugs at concessionary prices through the STBP’s Global Drug Facility (GDF). The NTP is working to further strengthen the country’s TB drugs’ management system and align it with the up-to-date international practices, including procurement and supply management, quality assurance and pharmacovigilance systems.

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 Drugs Quality Management (DQM) Specialist in Kazakhstan.
