The Task Force for Global Health improves health conditions for vulnerable populations around the world, especially the poor. Its eight programs focus on controlling and eliminating debilitating infectious diseases and building durable systems that protect and promote health. The Task Force partners closely with the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) sector to eliminate neglected tropical diseases, specifically trachoma, river blindness, lymphatic filariasis, and soil-transmitted helminths. These programs benefit from significant in-kind donations of antibiotic and anti-parasitic medicines from major pharmaceutical companies. In 2016, The Task Force received the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize – the world’s largest award of its kind – in recognition of its extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering.
