The Task Force for Global Health is an independent, nongovernmental organization based in Decatur, Ga., USA, with field offices in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and Guatemala City, Guatemala. Since 2013, they have been ranked among the five largest nonprofit organizations in the United States by Forbes, due to significant in-kind contributions of medicines from pharmaceutical companies.
The Task Force consists of eight programs and five projects focused on neglected tropical diseases, vaccine-preventable diseases, and health systems strengthening.
The Task Force provides administrative, financial, and human resources services needed for programmatic success. The Task Force also plays essential convening roles for the programs and helps them advocate to funders and partners.
Their programs share a common collaborative approach in all of their work. The Neglected Tropical Diseases Support Center works closely with the International Trachoma Initiative, Mectizan Donation Program, and Children Without Worms programs to conduct operational research necessary to reach control and elimination goals for blinding trachoma, river blindness, lymphatic filariasis, and intestinal worms. In addition, the Public Health Informatics Institute works with programs across The Task Force to use health information more effectively.
As an Emory University affiliate, they benefit from the close association with a leading academic institution. All of their team members are Emory University employees.
Theirprograms and projects currently reach hundreds of millions of people in 154 countries. For more about their work, visit TheirWork and Impact.
