Mission, Vision, and Values

People around the world suffer needlessly from debilitating diseases and other large-scale health challenges. The Task Force sees a world with the resources and means to address these health 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 believe partnerships are critical to solving large-scale health problems and help bring the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to work together on solutions. We apply rigorous science in all our programs and practice deep compassion for the people whom we serve.

Mission: We exist to forge the partnerships needed to foster innovative thinking, catalyze action, and finally solve large-scale health challenges affecting vulnerable populations.

Vision: A world free of debilitating diseases where all people are protected by strong 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.
