These are the issues we get out of bed for. We champion these causes in our programme work, and engage others to join the movement.

 We run large health workforce capacity development programmes in EthiopiaSomaliland & Zambia, and have a significant country presence in Tanzania and Uganda. We also manage grants programmes for DFID and Johnson and Johnson, supporting health partnerships across thirty-four countries in Africa and Asia.

This grounds our work in a deep understanding of the challenges faced by health workers and the critical role they play in strengthening health systems and the wider societies in which they live.

In support of our mission, we develop policy positions and resources, participate in consultations, write commentary and actively engage in global health forums in the UK, in the countries where we work, and internationally. We do so in partnership with governments, the private sector, the NHS and our own community of international development organisations. At an international level, we are in official relationship with the World Health Organization.
