Collaboration is at the core of all of our work. Through partnerships, we mobilize resources and expertise that are necessary to solve global health problems. Our credibility and expertise in collaboration have allowed us to become a neutral convener for diverse global health partnerships. In this role, we help build consensus and identify synergies for partnerships to work effectively.

Our seminal success in increasing childhood immunization rates globally resulted from an unlikely partnership among the World Bank, World Health Organization, UNICEF, Rockefeller Foundation, and United Nations Development Programme. Since then, our partnerships with the pharmaceutical industry have resulted in billions of dollars annually in contributions of essential medicines for the control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases.

We Are an Agile and Responsive Platform

We currently serve as the secretariat or hub for six major global health coalitions focused on addressing a range of global health challenges. As the neutral convener and catalyst for these coalitions, we bring together hundreds of organizations from the nonprofit, government, academic, and private sectors to implement high-impact programs and projects.

These coalitions include:

The Task Force provides an agile and responsive platform for the world’s leading global health and development agencies to increase their own impact. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation regularly call on The Task Force to assist with responses to global health priorities.
