BACKGROUND INFORMATION – JOB-SPECIFIC

THIS IS A LOCAL POSITION FOR WHICH ONLY APPLICANTS WITH SWISS NATIONALITY OR WITH THE RIGHT TO LIVE AND WORK IN SWITZERLAND (EU CITIZENS OR NATIONALITIES ELIGIBLE FOR DIFFERENT SWISS WORK PERMITS) ARE ELIGIBLE FOR CONSIDERATION.

**
Stop TB Partnership**

UNOPS hosts the Stop Tuberculosis Partnership Secretariat (STBP) as of 1 January 2015, in Geneva, Switzerland. The vision of the Stop TB Partnership is to realize the goal of elimination of Tuberculosis (TB) as a public health problem and, ultimately, to obtain a world free of TB by ensuring that every TB patient has access to effective diagnosis, treatment and cure; stopping transmission of TB; reducing the inequitable social and economic toll of TB; and developing and implementing new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic tools and strategies. The Stop Partnership is uniquely positioned to support the development and further implementation by partners of the current and future Global Plan, acting as a coordinator and catalyst for the range of partners engaged in the fight against TB.

Founded in 2001, the Stop TB 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 partners include international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector

As a key initiative of the STBP, the goal of the Global Drug Facility (GDF) is to facilitate world-wide, equitable access to TB medicines and diagnostics across both public and private sectors. This goal is achieved through management and coordination of market activities for the full portfolio of TB medicines and diagnostics, strategic procurement and innovative logistics solutions, technical assistance and capacity building for TB programmes in better pharmaceutical management practices, and accelerated uptake of new TB medicines, regimens, and diagnostics using the GDF “launch pad.” GDF is highly reliant on technology to ensure quick and smooth procurement and supply of quality-assured TB products for populations in need.
