Our Vision

Our vision is a world free of TB and, until then, making diagnosis, treatment and care available to all who need it.

Our Mission

We aim to achieve our vision of a world free of TB by pursuing five key objectives:

  • To ensure that every person with TB has access to effective diagnosis, treatment, and cure;
  • To stop transmission of TB;
  • To reduce the inequitable social and economic toll of TB;
  • To develop, implement and increase access to new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic TB tools, products, and strategies; and
  • To amplify the voices of people with and affected by TB and secure meaningful change through strategic advocacy and communications.

About the Stop TB Partnership

The Stop TB Partnership brings together expertise from a broad spectrum of country, regional, and global partners in our shared mission to revolutionize the TB space and end TB by 2030.

Founded in 2001, the Stop TB Partnership is a United Nations hosted organization that takes bold and smart risks to serve the needs and amplify the voices of the people, communities, and countries affected by TB.

We work to advocate, catalyze, and facilitate sustained coordination and collaboration among partners; to support the development, replication, and scale-up of innovative approaches and tools; and to facilitate equitable access to TB diagnostics, treatment, and care for all in need.

We believe that our comprehensive range of strategic and technical expertise and our willingness to push boundaries are crucial factors in reaching the targets set forth by the TB community at large.

Our Hosting Arrangement

The Stop TB Partnership Secretariat is hosted and administered by UNOPS in Geneva, Switzerland.

From its founding in 2001 to the end of 2014, the Stop TB Partnership Secretariat was hosted and administered by the World Health Organization (WHO). In July 2014, the Board of the Stop TB Partnership decided to move the administration of the Partnership to UNOPS in 2015. It was recognized that the Partnership in its current form would be better able to fulfil its mandate by moving its Secretariat to UNOPS – a specialized provider of administrative services.
