The Global Health Connector Partnership connects global health communities targeting health inequalities, skills and data.

The worldwide delivery of health and care has become increasingly challenging over recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified demand and capacity issues and contributed to the ever-rising costs of health and care delivery. We are in need of changes: optimally planned services and robust and innovation-driven systems.
