Task Force For Global Health Background: The Task Force for Global Health is an Emory University affiliate located in Decatur, GA. Its eight programs focus on building robust public health systems that serve all people. Program areas include neglected tropical diseases, vaccines, and health systems strengthening. The Task Force for Global Health was recognized for its extraordinary contributions to alleviating human suffering with the 2016 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, the world's largest award of its kind. The Task Force is ranked among the largest nonprofits in the United States due to in-kind contributions of medicines and vaccines from major pharmaceutical companies valued at billions of dollars annually.
Health Campaign Effectiveness Background: Large-scale health campaigns that address specific diseases, risk factors, or prevention strategies have had enormous, positive impacts on global health. However, there are several significant problems inherent in the current approach to health campaigns that markedly limit both the near-term effectiveness and the long-term sustainability of such campaigns. These problems relate to shared learning and best practices across campaigns; the potential for shared planning, inputs, and infrastructure for campaigns; and campaign coordination with routine health systems. The Task Force for Global Health (Task Force), in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has created the Health Campaign Effectiveness Program to develop and facilitate an action-oriented learning/systems change coalition comprising leaders from across several large-scale health campaign domains such as malaria, neglected tropical diseases, immunization, polio, vitamin A, etc. The coalition, supported by the Task Force and Foundation partners, will work to identify, validate and promote the adoption of promising practices across campaigns; identify and foster opportunities for shared planning, inputs, and infrastructure among campaigns; and develop guiding principles and other tools to promote and improve coordination between health campaigns and routine health systems.
The Task Force hires staff through the Emory University Human Resources office. Want to learn more about The Task Force for Global Health, visit our TFGH Video Gallery
