HEALTH Diplomats is a specialised health, nutrition and wellness consulting group, operating worldwide. It leverages its expertise and networks to help develop and deliver solutions to global health-related problems.
In particular, it focuses on the areas of harm reduction and access to innovative and affordable healthcare. In harm reduction, the group has played a significant role in advancing harm reduction policies, science, products and consumer empowerment related to HIV and the harmful use of alcohol, drugs, food, beverages and tobacco. Access to healthcare services and products is another specialty, especially in lower and middle income countries.
Today's world has become flat, integrated, and inter-dependent with health issues impacting most areas of commercial and political life. This demands a multi-dimensional approach, where the successful interface between global health stakeholders is critical to solving humanities toughest challenges. The group is therefore fully aligned and supportive of the United Nations call for multi-stakeholder engagement and action to prevent and control noncommunicable disease, the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, the WHO Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To this end, we help forge client partnerships within the governmental, healthcare industry, and non-governmental sectors.
For each specific client assignment, we assemble an expert team of internationally recognised academics and practitioners. These teams are selected from the Health Diplomats network of leaders located in over 35 countries.
Its clients include Fortune 500 companies, global foundations, trade associations, governments and NGOs. Successes include the campaign for the inclusion of Taiwan as Observer in the WHO, the development of HIV/AIDS good practice guidelines for health professionals in resource poor countries and global health security in uncovered regions. The company has played a significant role in the development and establishment of harm reduction policies and products several countries in the world. We continue to build bridges between stakeholders and provide thought leadership to effect lasting change and improved global health.
The global health burden that is placed upon the international community demands effective transnational networks to provide sustainable solutions to the toughest challenges. Health diplomacy is a process and method that can help stakeholders effectively pursue their interests, overcome barriers to progress, and leverage the optimal benefit from international partnerships. In a world where disease is everybody's tragedy and everybody's nightmare, health diplomacy is in everyone’s interest.
