Global Health Council

Overview

The Global Health Council is the world's largest membership alliance dedicated to saving lives by improving health throughout the world. Our membership includes health-care professionals, NGOs, foundations, corporations, government agencies and academic institutions that work to ensure global health for all. The Council brings together global actors around five key issues – child health, women’s health, HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases and emerging threats – which have been identified as critical to improving health and promoting equity.

Mission

The Global Health Council works to ensure that all who strive for improvement and equity in global health have the information and resources they need to succeed.

Program

The Voice for Action
The Council informs and educates opinion leaders, policy-makers, the media and concerned citizens about crucial global health issues. The Council's efforts in local communities, with national governments, and with multilateral agencies spur greater investment in global health and sound approaches to improving health around the world.

The Council mobilizes hundreds of thousands through grassroots efforts; advocates for increased resources and sound policy; and generates newspaper, television and radio coverage on key issues.

The Voice for Progress
While many serious health problems can be addressed inexpensively and effectively with the right knowledge, too often practical advances in public health are not widely shared. The Council seeks to gather such knowledge and make it accessible for those who can use it to save lives.
The Council disseminates information through publications; shares knowledge through events such as the international annual conference, identifies and disseminates the evidence to support what works and what does not work to improve health and promotes and conducts research to fill identified knowledge gaps.
