The Aspen Institute mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues. The Aspen Institute does this primarily in four ways: 1. Seminars, which help participants reflect on what they think makes a good society, thereby deepening knowledge, broadening perspectives and enhancing their capacity to solve the problems leaders face. 2. Young-leader fellowships around the globe, which bring a selected class of proven leaders together for an intense multi-year program and commitment. The fellows become better leaders and apply their skills to significant challenges. 3. Policy programs, which serve as nonpartisan forums for analysis, consensus building, and problem solving on a wide variety of issues. 4. Public conferences and events, which provide a commons for people to share ideas. The Institute is based in Washington, DC, Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and has an international network of partners.   ASPEN GLOBAL HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT (GHD) Aspen Global Health and Development (GHD) has a straightforward mission: It supports innovative strategies for global health and poverty alleviation. GHD supports public leaders in health in low- and middle-income countries and creative solutions to address global health and poverty at significant scale.   Why We Launched GHD Most of the developing world will not reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), particularly in health and poverty reduction, and gaping inequities in health and income remain between the developed and developing world.  The last decade has seen progress in reduction of major diseases, yet developing county health systems are fragile and large percentages of populations still do not have access to basic health care. Integrating health and poverty alleviation strategies is essential for accelerating progress towards the MGDs.   What GHD Will Do GHD's mission is to identify, assess, and support highly innovative strategies for global health and poverty alleviation.  As a legacy program of Realizing Rights, GHD will continue and grow Realizing Rights' Global Health Equity Program. GHD will also continue programs in the following areas:  the global health workforce crisis, policy innovations to address the challenges of global health worker migration, women’s global health including maternal mortality and reproductive health, community based models of financing for health, and aid effectiveness in development assistance for health.
