When GHC announced it would close its doors in June 2012, global health became the only development community of comparable scope and impact without a collective forum or voice. Members of the former GHC and wider global health community quickly came together to explore the needs and options for a new global health coalition. A new Board of Directors was elected in January 2013 and is now moving the organization forward with a revised set of priorities.
GHC is working with the U.S. government and other global bodies on behalf of its members to influence global health policies and resource allocation decisions. GHC is building on the organization’s history, profiting from lessons learned, and taking new directions suited to an evolving environment and the changing needs of its members. Currently, the emphasis is on responsiveness and accountability to the membership, accompanied by consistent, transparent dialogue with members.
GHC is a financially stable and soundly run organization. GHC’s financial statements are audited on an annual basis, and 990 reports are filed annually as well.
