Lack of access to basic health care, including affordable vaccines, modern contraceptives, and safe birth delivery, continues to put millions of lives at risk each year, particularly women and children. Many organizations, foundations, partnerships, and consultancy groups are committed to tackling these global health issues and providing affordable, sustainable solutions. Humanitarian agencies, in addition to providing emergency health assistance, also support local hospitals and deliver sexual and reproductive health care to those affected by conflicts and natural disasters.

Tackling global health challenges requires not just technical experts and health practitioners, but also professionals with a range of skills, including advocacy, finance, communications, grant management, and logistics.

Here is an overview of some of the top employers working in global health.
