Policy and advocacy

We bring together governments, affected communities, funders and organisations from across the world to advocate for evidence-based policies that improve health. 

What we do 

We focus on the world's biggest health challenges and supporting the best possible environment for researchers to thrive.

Our work with researchers and policy makers – as well as commercial, charitable and non-governmental organisations around the world – informs decisions about science and health, and provides strong evidence for coordinated global action.
