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 European office co-hosts the European Parliament Working Group on innovation, access to medicines and poverty-related diseases with Médecins Sans Frontières. This Working Group organises study visits, round tables and briefings on health issues. In collaboration with RESULTS UK, GHA also provides the secretariat of the TB Europe Coalition, an alliance of individuals and civil society organisations (CSOs) who raise awareness and mobilise decision makers on TB issues in the WHO's European region. GHA also coordinates EACH, the European Advocacy Coalition for Global Health R&D.
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.
