NRL Becomes Member of Global Health Alliance
In January, NRL was very pleased to become the newest member of Global Health Alliance (GLHAM). GLHAM, based in Melbourne and launched in 2017, aims to connect entities across nine identified organisational types across Australia to form local alliances and catalyse non-traditional partnerships to increase the effectiveness and quality of global health outcomes compared to what individual organisations and institutions might achieve on their own.
These strategic connections aim to:
improve outcomes for member organisations including programmatic partnerships and new funding or business opportunities
build the capacity of the sector for greater global health impact
profile Australia as a global leader in health and development innovation
The approach to building more effective organisational partnerships and the capacity of the sector is aligned to a longer term vision for more equitable and improved global health outcomes – mirroring the goals of similar organisations such as the Washington Global Health Alliance and four other ‘sister’ alliances in the U.S.
