Advocacy and Policy


Global health challenges can not be solved by any one organization alone. The right mix of public sector, private sector, and nongovernmental organizations need to come to the table and identify a path forward that addresses a wide range of political, financial, and social challenges. To create and maintain coalitions that drive progress on health, we:

  • Maintain relationships with an extensive network of key global health stakeholders.
  • Identify specific partners needed to achieve a desired policy change or health outcome.
  • Convene forums that bring partners together.

We led the global immunization community to make a public statement during the US National Vaccine Advisory Committee meetings for US investments in global immunization. Read the public statement >>
