ABOUT US

Who We Are

The Stop TB Partnership (STBP) is sustained by public-private partnership, including the participation of non-governmental actors in its governance and decision-making structures.

The contribution of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to the development of the STBP and scale up of its programs is crucial to ending the Tuberculosis (TB) diseases. The STBP’s value for the voices of NGOs is demonstrated by NGO representation and participation on its Board. The participation of the Developing Country NGO Delegation (henceforth referred to as The Delegation) on the Stop TB Board is vital to the principles and practice of the Partnership.

The Constituency

The constituency is made up of all the National NGO

operating in countries defined by the IMF as “emerging/developing economies” with the exception of those headquartered in developed countries. Organization types under this constituency include: faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, health care service providers, advocacy groups, professional associations

TEAM
The Delegation

The Delegation aims to contribute to and influence Stop TB (STBP) policies and practices in an effort to make them continually and appropriately responsive to the needs of those affected by Tuberculosis and HIV, AIDS and the NGOs and CBOs providing necessary services. The defining feature of this delegation to STBP processes and policies is its ability to bring the perspectives as representatives from countries and implementers.

STBP Board Members are expected to be technically competent in the areas of public health, human rights and development. The Delegation has an added responsibility of both representing and being accountable to diverse constituencies from across the developing world. In addition, The Delegation must increase demand for transparency, effective communication, meaningful consultation and accountability.
