Project Management

Vital Strategies has leveraged its expertise in project management to bring systems-changing public health initiatives to global scale. We administer programs driving global change, built a global field staff capable of supporting impactful international programs, embedded staff within governments to grow their capacity, and trained thousands of professionals from more than 100 countries in public health skills.

We work with leading global funders and international organizations such as the World Health Organization and the World Bank, national governments and civil society groups at all levels. We have launched a five-year global road safety program focusing on ten global cities, a twenty-country initiative to build capacity to collect and analyze data, are one of five global partners in the global Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, and have built a model maternal health program in remote Tanzania.

Policy Advocacy

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.
