Our mission is to energize the healthy and inclusive development of countries, families and individuals, including children and youth with fragile beginnings globally.
Our passion is to create a better world through improving health conditions, preventing poverty due to ill health and ensuring dignified care and inclusion for all, especially the most vulnerable.
We do so through policy translation and through providing support and advice to global and national leaders and communities on:
We promote health systems strengthening, a multi-sectoral global development approach to health, as the cornerstone to achieve sustainable universal access to health care and other key programs and services to improve health outcomes, financial protection, dignity of care and inclusion.
We are a values-based organization. Our beliefs and values guide all our collaboration, from whom we serve to how we contribute globally and how we grow together.
We aspire to create a space for policy dialogue and innovation on health systems and multi-sectorial approaches to health globally.
