What We Do
At The Task Force, we have real impact by solving massive health problems. We work with partners to eliminate diseases that have plagued humanity for centuries and transform health systems, so that in the end, all people can realize their right to living a healthy life. Our programs make an impact in the following areas.
We have expertise in mobilizing populations through disease elimination campaigns to ensure that medicines, supplies, and interventions are provided, distributed, and implemented throughout communities around the world.
We protect the health of populations by training disease detectives, helping to build effective health systems and strong workforces, and assuring communities have the information they need to fight diseases.
