Global Health Council is actively engaged with key multilateral institutions, representing the collective voice of our members and advocating for policies and funding to address critical gaps in the global health response. We work to ensure space is not only made for civil society engagement, but that that space is maintained in an ongoing fashion. Finally, we work to ensure that these institutions are operating as effectively, efficiently, and transparently as possible.
Multilateral institutions are a collective resource, helping to protect the health of the world’s citizens. They require collective support to accomplish shared global goals.
- Diverse stakeholders — including civil society and other non-state actors — must be engaged in multilateral decision-making to ensure no one is left behind in the pursuit of global health goals.
- Multilaterals must continually improve operations and outcomes through structural changes and, where needed, reforms.
- Multilateral institutions drive cross-country collaboration, apply technical leadership, and expertise and capacity building, and support under-resourced health systems.
