The role of the Stop TB Partnership is to facilitate, catalyze and coordinate the work of partners. It’s work is guided by the Operational Strategy 2013-15, which has four strategic goals:
- Facilitate meaningful and sustained collaboration among partners
- Increase political engagement by world leaders and key influencers to double external financing for TB from 2011 to 2015
- Promote innovation in TB diagnosis and care through TB REACH (link) and other innovative mechanisms and platforms.
- Ensure universal access to quality assured TB medicines and diagnostics in countries served by the Global Drug Facility (GDF).
The Secretariat is led by the Executive Secretary (link), who is responsible for developing the Secretariat's work plan and for facilitating achievement of the aims and decisions of the Coordinating Board.
