Abstract

The Global Health Council (GHC), formerly the National Council for International Health, is a private and voluntary organization of concerned groups and individuals working together to promote more effective United States involvement in international health programs. Founded in 1971, the Council works to gather, coordinate, and disseminate new ideas and technological resources among private and public agencies oriented toward international health; enhance the effectiveness of private and voluntary sector organizations involved in international health activities through training, education, planning, and networking; and channel the technical assistance resources of the United States, particularly via domestic private sector groups, to improve basic health services in the developing world. The Council offers technical support in the form of international conferences, training courses, consultation, and networking (communication and manpower exchange among private and public sector and national and international organizations).
