GHAI Partnership Event
The Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI) was launched by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) in 2014. This week, we introduced our work to the global public health community at an event in Washington, DC. We shared our model and announced our commitment to working with other organizations around the world who want to use policy change to reduce death and disease.
We were pleased to be joined by Dr. Kelly Henning and Kelly Larson from Bloomberg Philanthropies. Dr. Henning described our work together, including Bloomberg Philanthropies’ maternal and reproductive health project in Tanzania, which yesterday transitioned to government ownership thanks in part to GHAI advocacy support.
The Washington event also featured remarks by GHAI and CTFK leadership, and the debut of a video about our work and mission.
