In 2018, we worked around the world, partnering with government and civil society to deliver solutions to the most pressing health problems of our time. We expanded our global footprint, tackled new public health issues, and deepened our work in established program areas, all with a goal of strengthening public health systems—the often-invisible web of protections that enable people to lead long, productive and healthy lives.
This work would not be possible without a dedicated staff, and donors and partners who believe in our capabilities and our successes.
