Website: http://www.stoptb.org/ Type: International Organization/Agency Country: Switzerland About: The Stop TB Partnership was established in 2000 to realize the goal of eliminating TB as a public health problem and, ultimately, to obtain a world free of TB. It comprises a network of international organizations, countries, donors from the public and private sectors, governmental and nongovernmental organizations and individuals that have expressed an interest in working together to achieve this goal. WHO has a dual role in the Stop TB Partnership. As a leading agency in the partnership, WHO provides guidance on global policy and has permanent representation in the Stop TB Coordinating Board. WHO is also the housing institution of the Stop TB Partnership Secretariat, which benefits from the mechanisms of WHO. The secretariat follows the rules and regulations of WHO for its administrative, financial and human resources management, subject, if necessary, to the adaptations which might be required in order to meet the particular needs of the Stop TB Partnership.
