Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety
The Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety launched in the fall of 2013 and is reflective of the growing role of the private sector in contributing to diverse global health initiatives. This forum seeks to foster a collaborative community of multisectoral health and safety leaders from multinational companies, as well as members from governments, foundations, humanitarian and professional organizations, academia, and civil society to leverage the strengths of varying sectors and multiple disciplines to yield benefits for global health and safety. Powerful partnerships among these stakeholders can foster dialogue, exchange knowledge, utilize innovation and technological and process efficiencies, and expand corporate social responsibility to synergistically advance humanitarian, international development, and corporate health interests. The forum’s emphasis on low- and middle-income countries can provide opportunities for corporations to contribute to occupational and environmental health, community public health, and health systems strengthening to improve the health and safety of employees and communities around the world, as well as research and development in these areas.
