New opportunities for funding and engagement
Your role in the future of the Stop TB Partnership

31 October 2013 - Hotel Le Meridien, Paris, France

Following the approval of the Stop TB Partnership Secretariat’s Operational Strategy 2013-2015 and a series of governance reforms, the Stop TB Partnership has recently undergone a period of change and evolution.

This meeting, which was open to all people visiting Paris for the World Conference on Lung Health, presented a unique opportunity to discuss:

  • Secretariat priorities, including our advocacy, partnering and Global Fund engagement activities
  • Governance reform, including the new Coordinating Board structure, the new constituencies and how to engage with your constituency representative
  • Resources and funding opportunities, including
    • the ongoing TB REACH call for proposals
    • the next round of the Challenge Facility for Civil Society
    • access to quality assured first and second line drugs and diagnostics, including GeneXpert, through the Global Drug Facility
