Connecting to solve global health challenges together

The Bay Area Global Health Alliance facilitates the development of non-traditional partnerships to help advance global health innovation and equity. Activities include:


  • Networking and matchmaking with experts and stakeholders in our extensive multi-sector network in global health, which is comprised of academic institutions, NGOs, foundations, tech, and other private sector members and partners. They are local, national, and international organizations and include sister coalitions.

  • Bespoke connections to organizations and contacts in the Alliance network that are focused on similar investment and issue areas, with the potential of brokering collaborations on aligned goals

  • Exposure to and support in navigating the Bay Area’s health and the digital health ecosystem

Convenings and Collective Intelligence

  • Access to multi-sector perspectives and expertise on public health and global health issues to accelerate insights, innovation, and impact

  • Cross-sector programming and panels on priority global health issue areas of aligned interest, often with a health-tech lens and inclusion of the tech sector

  • Private web dialogues, candid conversations, and pressure-testing on key challenges and opportunities

  • Shared learnings and insights on global health trends, best practices, and challenges


  • Visibility for Alliance member contributions to global health through communications, including our Connections newsletter (with distribution of 9K global health leaders and influencers) and social media channels

  • Curated global health news and events from our global network of members and partners to provide a wide, cross-sectoral lens on what’s happening in global health in Silicon Valley and beyond

  • Collective voice on advocacy to advance key global health priorities with the Global Health Council, Global Health Technologies Coalition, and other regional alliances, along with the Consortium of Universities in Global Health

We serve as a neutral convener, communicator, and connector, brokering multi-sector collaborations and engaging the tech sector alongside traditional global health stakeholders.
