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 TB 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.

The Stop TB Partnership is a unique and innovative global health organization that brings together partners, expertise, funding, commodities, and people-centered services in our shared mission to transform the tuberculosis (TB) space and end TB by 2030. 

Founded in 2001, the Stop TB Partnership is a United Nations (UN) hosted organization that takes bold and smart risks to serve and amplify the voices of the people, communities, stakeholders, and partners from countries affected by TB. 

The Stop TB Partnership is guided by three strategic goals to: 

  1. Advocate, catalyze, and facilitate sustained coordination and collaboration among partners; 

  2. Support the development, replication, and scale-up of innovative approaches and tools; and 

  3. Facilitate global, equitable access to TB diagnostics and medicines. 

The organization’s comprehensive range of strategic and technical expertise and our willingness to push boundaries are crucial factors in reaching the targets agreed upon by Heads of States and the TB community-at-large to end TB by 2030.

The Stop TB Partnership’s External Affairs & Strategic Initiatives (EASI) Team supports the organization primarily by:

  1. Catalyzing and securing sustainable financing from the public and private sector for the Secretariat and country programes;

  2. Engaging with both the public and private sector to elevate and enhance the Secretariat and the organization’s mandate on global agendas; and

  3. Conceptualizing, designing, rolling-out, and implementing business-minded approaches and projects to address systematic barriers in the TB and global health space. 

The intern will work on the SIIF team to support the implementation of critical activities related to a4i.
