FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE STOP TB PARTNERSHIP
The Stop TB Partnership is leading the way to a world without tuberculosis (TB), a disease that is curable but still kills three people every minute. Founded in 2001, the 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. Our role is to ensure a bold vision for addressing TB and to coordinate and catalyse global efforts towards elimination of the disease.
Together our nearly 1000 partners are a collective force that is transforming the fight against TB in more than 100 countries. They include international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector.

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO STOP TB?
We have a global plan
The world could be on its way towards eliminating TB if governments and donors fully invest in the Stop TB Partnership's roadmap: The Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015. The plan shows TB programmes how to drive universal access to TB care, including how to adopt revolutionary TB tests that are now available; and identifies research needed to develop rapid TB tests, faster treatment regimens and a fully effective vaccine.

We are delivering drugs and diagnostic supplies to countries in need
Our Global Drug Facility has changed the landscape of TB care since its creation in 2001 by providing TB drugs to countries that could otherwise not afford them, either in the form of grants or at the lowest possible price. At the end of 2010, we had delivered more than 18 million treatment courses to 93 countries. Read more
We are supporting efforts to find people with TB who would otherwise not get treatment
Our TB REACH initiative is a pathfinder in reaching the 3 million people who fail to access high-quality TB treatment each year. The initiative funds innovative projects that result in early and increased detection of TB cases and ensure timely treatment. It has so far funded 75 projects in 36 countries with the goal of finding and treating 140 000 people whose TB would otherwise have gone undetected. Read more
We bring together partners to deliver better TB care through joint national plans
National and regional partnerships bring varied partners together to develop and implement shared action plans to tackle TB. These partnerships draw on the skills and competencies of partners to increase efficiency, avoid duplication of effort and extend the reach of TB services. Read more
We are pushing for more attention to childhood TB
Until now childhood TB has not been a priority in public health and has remained essentially a hidden pandemic. The Stop TB Partnership is calling on all public health programmes and health care providers to transform their approaches so that all infants and children with TB get high-quality care and the world can move towards zero TB deaths among children.

We are showing the way to save a million lives among people living with HIV by confronting TB
Every day a thousand people living with HIV lose their lives to TB. The disease takes the lives of more people living with HIV than any other infectious disease. Yet TB is preventable and curable with inexpensive medicines. Scientific modelling developed in 2011 has shown that by scaling up methods that are already available, we can save a million people living with HIV from dying of TB by 2015. Read more
