Via Libre, Global Fund Advocates Network Asia Pacific and the Platform for ACT-A Civil Society and Community Representatives have launched a nomination process to identify two civil society and community representatives to the Steering Committee of the Future of Global Health Initiatives (coordinated by Wellcome Trust).
The Future of Global Health Initiatives process convenes a diverse group of stakeholders from across high-, middle- and low-income country governments, global and regional health organisations, research institutions and civil society, to review the roles and responsibilities of the GHIs. It is led by two Co-Chairs, Mercy Mwangangi, Chief Administrative Secretary of the Kenyan Ministry of Health, and John-Arne Røttingen, Ambassador for Global Health of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and supported by a Secretariat hosted by the Wellcome Trust. The process aims to provide specific recommendations for more efficient, effective and equitable arrangements, and catalyse collective action to shape a global GHI ecosystem that is fit purpose through to 2030 and beyond. The Steering Group will act as a sounding board, guide the work and ensure buy-in to the Future of Global Health Initiatives process. More information about this process can be found here.
