The Task Force was initially founded to solve one global health challenge – low, global, childhood immunization rates. Since then, the world has turned to us to help them solve some of the toughest health challenges we face.
As reflected in our original name, The Task Force for Child Survival, our early work focused on health issues affecting children around the world. We later became The Task Force for Global Health to reflect the expanded breadth of our programs that address the health needs of populations around the world.
