Global Health Advocates pushes for messages rather than its brand. For this reason, GHA is seen by partners in Brussels and France as a facilitator, often playing a coordinating role in the work of different civil society platforms. As a part of this effort, we are a member of the following networks and coalitions:
ACTION FOR GLOBAL HEALTH is a network of European health and development organisations advocating for the European Union and its Member States to play a stronger role to improve health in developing countries.
The TB Europe Coalition (TBEC) is an informal advocacy alliance of individuals associated with civil society organisations that share a commitment to raising awareness of TB and to increasing the political will required to effectively control the disease throughout the World Health Organisation (WHO) European Region and worldwide.
Coordination SUD is the French national platform of international solidarity NGOs. Founded in 1994, it brings together more than 137 NGOs active in the fields of humanitarian aid, development assistance, environmental protection, the defense of disadvantaged people’s human rights and international solidarity education and advocacy. Coordination SUD fulfills a dual mission of supporting the professionalization of French NGOs and representing their positions to public and private institutions in France, Europe and around the world.
GHA helped create the Collectif Santé Mondiale, which gathers 9 associations calling on the French government to safeguard aid for global health, with a specific focus on nutrition, health systems strengthening, sexual and reproductive health and rights and pandemics.
The European Parliament Working Group on Innovation, Access to Medicines and Poverty-Related Diseases aims to ensure that the EU adopts appropriate measures that improve access to existing medical tools (medicines, diagnostics, vaccines) and stimulate the research and development (R&D) of urgently-needed better tools for people in developing countries, notably for poverty-related diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
As part of the European Alliance for Responsible R&D and Affordable Medicines, an alliance of representatives of civil society, consumer, patient and public health organisations, GHA raises awareness and advocates for reform of the pharmaceutical R&D model. The Alliance calls for the creation of an R&D system that is driven by public health needs, results in public goods and delivers medicines that are universally accessible and affordable.
People's Budget Campaign and network wants a united Europe. The key to unlocking a positive new vision is rethinking the EU Budget to make it work for citizens. We want to believe in a brighter future, where Europe is reconnected to its people and values. We want to rethink where the money goes in order to build an economy that is more equal and sustainable. An economy based on well-being.
