UNOPS Background: 

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners' peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world. UNOPS supports partners to build a better future by providing services that increase the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of peace building, humanitarian and development projects. Mandated as a central resource of the United Nations, UNOPS provides sustainable project management, procurement and infrastructure services to a wide range of governments, donors and United Nations organizations.

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. The Stop TB Partnership is guided by three (3) 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. 

Background - Team

The Stop TB Partnership’s Country and Community Support for Impact (CCS4i) Team, works on three complementary priorities: 

  1. technically strong country responses; 

  2. empowered networks of people affected by TB, and engaged civil society and other key stakeholders; 

  3. advancement of rights-based, gender sensitive TB response that prioritizes TB key and vulnerable populations. 

Through its Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS), CCS4i Team provides tools to facilitate the involvement of people affected by TB and civil society in all aspects of the TB response and grants to partners in lower-income and/or high TB burden countries to remove social, legal and economic barriers to universal access to TB prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and support services, create demand for highest quality drugs and diagnostics, community-led monitoring of TB service quality, advocacy for law and policy change, and elevating the voice of TB survivors in national and global TB governance. Through country-level STPPlatforms CCS4i Team mobilize and engage country key stakeholders for advocacy, awareness, visibility, and demand creation. 

Under the direct supervision of the CCS4i Team Lead, and working closely with the Programme Management Support Associate and Grant Management Analyst, the Administration Senior Assistant provides support to office operations performing a variety of standard administrative processes and programme support, ensuring high quality and accuracy of work.
