Advocacy

Global Health Councils works across global health sectors to achieve the greatest impact: connecting dots, consolidating requests, and clearly and effectively communicating with policymakers. For example:

  • The biennial Global Health Briefing Book, a primer on global health for new members of the U.S. Congress, documents the difference U.S. investments make in people’s lives around the world.
  • GHC facilitates Global Health Advocacy Groups on key issues—such as the federal budget, global health security, maternal, newborn and child health, and non-communicable diseases—allowing members of our community to collaborate, share best practices, and coordinate advocacy efforts, and increase impact.
  • We engage diverse and inclusive population groups to discuss equity issues in domestic and global health.
  • Our advocacy updates provide the latest global health news from the Administration, Capitol Hill, and multilateral institutions regularly.
  • We advocate within the U.S. and in multilateral forums for sound, strong global health policies, and resources.
  • We serve on commissions and as advisors to WHO and other global health advocacy platforms such as UHC2030.
  • We share our expertise by authoring articles in publications such as The Lancet.
  • We offer webinars to reflect on key moments and events and discuss the way forward in our collective advocacy.
  • We provide members with tools, resources, and networking opportunities.
  • We provide community-based organizations and other members with training and funding opportunities to advance our common advocacy agendas
