Our partners and sponsors

To achieve our mission, the Forum works with partners and sponsors who support our vision and goals. We could not operate without the help of these partners and sponsors.

Our partners are organizations or groups that want to address critical health challenges collaboratively with the Forum and other groups and organizations that share an interest in the topic. Our partners help the Forum plan and deliver events such as Stakeholder Dialogues. They are directly involved in ‘steering’ the overall plan for the dialogue, participate in the dialogue and raise awareness of materials produced before and after events. We prepare partners to champion action after the event.
