Advocacy and Leadership

Companies have powerful built-in platforms to advocate for action on global health issues. When they join together, top-level executives can make a difference in global priorities, particularly when their advocacy is in partnership with other business leaders and the public health community. GBCHealth helps members foster an environment where public health players are not only open to, but seek out, partnerships with business.

Over the past ten years GBCHealth has worked in collaboration with members to shape and bring forward the voice of business on key issues of importance to global health.  Powerful examples include:

  • Development of a CEO pledge to end workplace HIV stigma and discrimination which was signed by more than 100 CEOs
  • Leading the business community in support of the successful repeal of the US HIV travel ban
  • Supporting signature government initiatives and focus areas, including PEPFAR and the US State Department's Office of Global Women's Issues
