Stop TB Partnership

The Different Categories Of Our Partners

At its 22nd Board meeting held in November 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Coordinating Board of the Stop TB Partnership approved a comprehensive package of governance reforms to improve its performance and impact on tuberculosis (TB). An important element of the Board reform has been to streamline the Board's structure so that it fosters stronger and more representative constituencies.

Partners are therefore organized around the following representative constituencies and groups of partners. Click on the links to see who our partners are under these categories.
