The Global Health Council’s membership base reflects our interconnected and interdependent world, including more than 450 organizations in both resource-rich and resource-poor settings, working together to ensure improvement and equity in global health. Our organizational members include non-governmental organizations, academic and research institutions, foundations, and private sector organizations. The Global Health Council’s coalition also includes more than 5,400 individual stakeholders: students, activists, academics, community health workers, and individual health care practitioners. Our members live and work in more than 100 countries, with half the organizations based in the developing world. Through collaboration and cooperation, our membership network represents a broad and powerful coalition engaged in improving global health outcomes.
WHAT WE DO
The Global Health Council promotes the global health agenda through interaction with a broad range of thought leaders and policy-makers around the world through four key activities:
-Convening members and partners in a common space to improve the alignment of research evidence, policy dialogue and practical action by sharing best practices and helping to shape international and U.S. policy decisions.
-Coordinating efforts among the broad network of our membership and other stakeholders by playing an active, leadership role in health and development coalitions and shaping collective positions, policy recommendations and key messages for action.
-Collaborating in partnerships with multilateral institutions, private sector firms, foundations, think-tanks and government agencies in the global North and the global South to identify, develop and promote solutions across the spectrum of global health issues, including HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, maternal, newborn and child health, neglected tropical diseases, health system strengthening, health workforce issues, capacity-building, global health innovation and financing for health.
-Communicating the latest advances and policy innovations in global health to a wide audience of policy-makers, practitioners and journalists through a program of research & analysis and policy communications, including a variety of new media tools and our Annual International Conference on Global Health, now in its 38th year, which attracts some 2,000 delegates (from nearly 70 countries) each year to learn, network and share best practices.
