Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues

Open Letter From GHC Board Of Directors

In an open letter posted to the Global Health Council’s (GHC) website, Jonathan Quick, chair of the GHC Board of Directors, summarizes the outcomes of a recent board meeting, including an “initial set of actions,” and he writes, “These times call for the kind of leadership in which a reinvigorated GHC can provide. The impact of global health investments is visible in countries around the world yet fiscal challenges threaten to squander the enormous potential. GHC not only recognizes the need for tangible progress in critical health areas, we also focus on cross-cutting issues such as health diplomacy and protecting and expanding resources for the entire global health portfolio.” Quick also notes, “Within the next several months we will host a virtual community town hall meeting for GHC members and others to discuss global health issues and priorities for the new GHC” (2/25).
