Mission, Vision, and Values

Infectious diseases and weak health systems are barriers to health and development for developing countries. The Task Force sees a world with the resources and means to address these issues. Our mission, vision, and values are rooted in the belief that all lives have equal value and everyone should have access to the means for good health. We recognize that the world’s poor lack political voices, so we advocate for their health needs through our work. We apply rigorous science and compassion for the people whom we serve in all of our programs and projects.

Mission:  To solve large-scale health problems affecting vulnerable populations around the world and to build sustainable systems that protect and promote health

Vision:  A world free of debilitating diseases where all people are served by effective public health systems


  • Collaboration – We believe partnerships are essential. Organizations working together have a much greater impact than they can when working on their own.
  • Global Health Equity and Social Justice – We work to provide all people, especially the world’s poor, with opportunities to lead healthy, productive lives.
  • Stewardship – We pride ourselves in the wise and judicious management of the resources entrusted to us.
  • Consequential Compassion – We link compassion to effective actions by being aware of the suffering of others, understanding the causes of that suffering, and engaging in informed actions to alleviate it.
