Where We Work

Our regions of focus

GLIDE works globally and regionally, identifying opportunities in endemic countries where we can help others go further, faster.

At the global level, we engage in advocacy and convene relevant stakeholders to help share lessons learned and experiences in disease elimination efforts. At the regional and national level, we partner with initiatives where our support can catalyse and help accelerate programmes to reach the last mile of disease elimination.
