GHA in France
In France, GHA has been working since 2009 on supporting and defending Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) and global health budgets. We are a member of Coordination Sud and lead its European Committee. GHA also helped create the Collectif Santé 2015, which gathers 8 associations calling on the French government to safeguard aid for global health. Moreover, we work specifically with MPs by:
- Organising study visits in the countries most affected by diseases of poverty;
- Organising conferences, round tables and seminars;
- Providing material for evaluating public policies.
GHA at EU Level
GHA's Brussels office develops recommendations on EU policies that have the potential to help the world reach equitable access to health. We specifically look at how EU Research policies can better deliver societal impact for its citizens, especially in the area of health and access to medicines. We look at trends in EU development policies, and how it likely affect EU support to global health and nutrition. Our current work is focusing on the recent shift in focus towards migration and security activities as well as the increasing involvement of private sector in development cooperation. We also coordinate the TB Europe Coalition, a regional network of 200 civil society advocates and activists who are working towards increasing the bottom up community response to the biggest infectious disease killer in the WHO Europe region.
GHA at Global Level
At the international level, GHA is a member of the CSO steering committee of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. We are also the representative of Northern associations in IHP+, lead the NGO delegation on TB at UNITAID and are a member of the Generation Nutrition Steering Committee as well as its branches in France and Brussels. GHA sits on the Steering Committee of OAFRESS, Francophone Africa's Association for Reinforcing Health and Vaccine Systems and is a member of the Stop TB Partnership.
In Southern countries, GHA works with its partners to strengthen domestic advocacy in favour of an increase and a better monitoring of health budgets.
