Stop TB Partnership

The Stop TB Partnership was established in 2001 and now consists of more than a thousand partners from more than a hundred countries. The vision of the Stop TB Partnership is “A World Free of Tuberculosis”.

The Stop TB Partnership was established in 2001 and now consists of more than a thousand partners from more than a hundred countries. These include public tuberculosis programmes, research institutes, international and national organisations, as well as grassroots organisations that are run by people who have, or have had, tuberculosis.

Every fifth year the partnership publishes a global plan for fighting tuberculosis. In order to follow up the WHO’s post-2015 strategy for the elimination of tuberculosis, the partnership has developed a global plan "End TB" 2016 - 2020 with priorities and measures that are required in order to achieve these goals.

Until now, the WHO has hosted the Stop TB Partnership’s secretariat, which is located in Geneva. In January 2015, they moved to the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in Copenhagen.

In addition to the secretariat, they have several thematic working groups, including ones for resistant tuberculosis and for co-infection of tuberculosis/HIV.

The Stop TB Partnership also works closely with The Global Fund.
