Collaboration is central to our work. We partner with governments, change makers, and leading researchers to move policy and people toward sustainable progress in global health.

Partnering with governments in 73 countries, and globally

We see government partnerships as central to our ability to drive wide-scale, sustainable improvements to health through strengthening public health systems. Over the last five years we have worked with national and subnational governments in 73 countries, and with a wider set of governments to improve policy guidelines in international fora such as UN High Level Meetings on Noncommunicable Diseases.
