GHA is looking for a consultant to research the role of multilateral development banks (MDBs) before and during the Covid-19 pandemic, in the sector of global health. The research should identify limits and risks, as well as the real added value, of MDBs in health care and health services and their role in increasing access to health care to vulnerable populations.
Global Health Advocates (GHA) is a French NGO whose mission is to carry out political advocacy in France and with the EU institutions to ensure policies and resources are effectively addressing health inequalities. Created in 2001, GHA was born out of a collective effort to eliminate three poverty-related diseases. At the French level, GHA works to ensure Official Development Assistance (ODA) is increased and that access to health is a priority in French development policies. At EU level, GHA develops recommendations on EU research, health, and development budgets and policies that have the potential to help the world reach equitable access to health.
