The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) has hosted the Stop TB Partnership Secretariat since 2015, in Geneva, Switzerland. The vision of the organization is to realize the goal of elimination of tuberculosis (TB) as a public health problem and, ultimately, to acquire a world free of TB by ensuring that every person with TB 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 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 TB and global health space and end TB by 2030.

Founded in 2001, the Stop TB Partnership is a 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 (3) strategic goals to:
  • Advocate, catalyze, and facilitate sustained coordination and collaboration among partners;
  • Support the development, replication, and scale-up of innovative approaches and tools; and
  • Facilitate global, equitable access to TB diagnostics and medicines.
The Stop TB Partnership’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.
