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 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.

Founded in 2001, the Stop TB Partnership's mission is to serve every person who is vulnerable to TB and ensure that high-quality treatment is available to all who need it. Stop TB partners include international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector.

As a key initiative of the Stop TB Partnership, the goal of the Global Drug Facility (GDF) is to facilitate worldwide, equitable access to TB medicines and diagnostics across both public and private sectors. This goal is achieved through management and coordination of market activities for the full portfolio of TB medicines and diagnostics, strategic procurement and innovative logistics solutions, technical assistance and capacity building for TB programmes in better pharmaceutical management practices, and accelerated uptake of new TB medicines, regimens, and diagnostics using the GDF Launch Pad.

Under the supervision and guidance of Stop TB GDF's Demand, Technical Assistance, and Capacity Building (DTC) Team Leader, the incumbent will work closely with the GDF Regional Technical Advisors (RTA) in development, implementation, and monitoring of DTC strategy.

The incumbent will be highly involved in communication with donors and partners on the achievements of the DTC team globally to demonstrate value for money, results, performances, and impact of GDF technical assistance. 

The Technical Coordination Advisor will be responsible for coordinating information gathering, processing and analyses from Regional Technical Advisors at the global level and maintaining evidence for the leadership in GDF; including supporting systems for ongoing data collection in priority countries and development of valid evidence to inform GDF units and Stop TB on strategic, market and operational decisions and thus improve the global supply as well as indicators related to the uptake of new TB tools. The incumbent will be involved in the development of grant proposals and technical reports to donors and/or other stakeholders; The position is based in Geneva, Switzerland.
