Advocacy and Policy


We advocate for policies and resources that improve the health of women and children, including maternal, newborn, and child health, malaria eradication and elimination, immunization, and reproductive health. We ensure government leadership on global health, influence global priorities and partnerships, and advance advocacy agendas in many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia to achieve better health outcomes.
