UNOPS has hosted the Stop Tuberculosis Partnership Secretariat (STBP) since 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 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 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 to end 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’s TB REACH initiative provides grants to partners in lower-income and/or high TB burden countries to test innovative and well thought-out, yet unproven approaches and technologies which aim to:

  • Increase the number of people with TB (TB infection or active TB [drug-sensitive or -resistant]) who are diagnosed, started on treatment, and reported to National TB Programs (NTPs).

  • Decrease the time it takes someone with TB to receive appropriate treatment, and

  • Improve adherence and treatment success for people started on anti-TB treatment.

TB REACH combines open, but targeted calls for proposals, fast-track financing and meticulous, external monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to rapidly produce results. Other donor agencies and/or national governments can then scale-up the successful approaches piloted by recipients of TB REACH funding to improve their own investments and to accelerate progress in the fight to end TB.

Under the overall guidance and supervision of the Team Lead for the Innovations & Grants team (TB REACH), the incumbent performs administrative support services, covering specialized and non-specialized processes and transactions for discrete work areas in administration and logistics, ensuring efficient, client oriented and effective service delivery.

he Programme Management Support Associate promotes a client, quality and results-oriented approach, ensuring utilization of office resources in a most cost-effective manner.
