Addressing Gaps in Healthcare Through Real World Advocacy


So far in 2021, the COVID Advocacy Exchange has brought the global advocacy community together to not only hear from each other, but to prioritize and begin to tackle global health issues. Discussions in the first quarter of the year have focused on "Patient Insights Influencing Action," "Harnessing Our United Strength to Create Meaningful Change," and "Outlining Our Paths to Impact and Change." As we move into April and recognize National Minority Health Month, our session will be all about representation; learning from and honoring meaningful change driven by members of our communities. Our Working Groups will then share the progress they are making in their focus areas, as well as where we see overlapping priorities. Join us to learn from others, share your perspectives and elevate the global advocacy impact.
