The Global Health Committee is focused on curing tuberculosis (TB) and effectively treating AIDS among the world's poorest populations. We believe that it is a fundamental human right to receive medicines for curable or treatable diseases. We seek to accomplish our mission by:
- Providing access to medicine and the education, knowledge and support to complete difficult courses of therapy to lead healthy lives
- Conducting research and discovery to find more effective and innovative approaches to treatment
- Advocating for access to TB and AIDS medicines for all who need them
Our efforts are focused on adults and children in Asia and Africa. We work in rural and urban settings, reaching those displaced by war, live in post-conflict nations or who are otherwise unable to access medicine for curable or treatable illnesses. We assist people regardless of race, sex, age, religion or political affiliation.
Delivery of care, discovery of new knowledge, advocacy and research are the key components of our work in Cambodia, Ethiopia, and at the Harvard Medical School in Boston. Our goal is to find timely, new answers – from the grassroots to the lab – for how to best overcome diseases such as TB and AIDS.
