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.

The Stop TB Partnership is governed by the Stop TB Partnership Board which provides leadership and strategic direction, monitors the implementation of agreed policies, plans and activities of the Partnership, and ensures coordination among stakeholders. The Board is led by a Chair and a Vice-Chair. The Chair of the Board since March 2021 is the Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. The Executive Director Office, including the Executive Director, the Deputy Executive Director and the Governance Officer provide support to the Board leadership to fulfill their roles. 

In this regard, the STBP is looking to engage a Senior Advisor for the Chair of the Stop TB Board in order to provide strategic advice and act as liaison between the Stop TB Partnership and the Stop TB Board Chair for all matters concerning Stop TB governance, global and regional TB advocacy work, partnerships, meetings and events. 

Under the supervision of the STBP Executive Director, the Senior Advisor to the STBP Board Chair will ensure that the high level advocacy work of Stop TB Partnership will have the right gravitas and engagement of key stakeholders, participating in the G20 meetings and preparatory meetings, as well as supporting the preparation and implementation of the UN High Level Meeting in 2023, ensuring the right level of leadership and peer engagement from government officials especially those from the government of India.
