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 objective of the Global Drug Facility (GDF), a ISO:9001 certified entity, is to ensure access to quality-assured anti-TB drugs, diagnostics and other supplies by employing innovative business approaches, efficient knowledge management for evidence-driven leadership in market management, strategic procurement, and high quality procurement and supply services to client countries. GDF’s strategic vision of success is that all people requiring TB diagnostics and medicines are able to access them from markets optimized to meet public health needs.
