Part of Vital Strategies’ commitment to creating sustainable public health impact is working to craft and promote public health policies that can change the context of health, and advocate for the resources that those policies need to be successful. We draw upon our technical expertise to engage in policy advocacy at every level – from working within the U.N. system to push for optimal sustainable development global goals and indicators, partnering with national governments to influence best practice policies and working with journalists and civil society to promote health issues.
|We use media advocacy and data resources like The Tobacco Atlas - the most quoted source for global tobacco control data and policy – to drive adoption of best practice and policies.|
|Initiatives managed by our legacy organizations have distributed more than $US 100 million to governments and civil society groups in more than 96 countries.|
