Our Policy Desks Approach
UNITE Policy Desks are highly practical officers who possess a strong sense of policy gathering, monitoring and implementation; complemented by strong intelligence on the ground coordinating action with our members of parliament, congresses and senates. Aiming to accelerate infectious diseases elimination as a global health threat, Desks involve global, regional and local actors, and will be specialized in specific diseases or topics, to which they will make a thorough assessment of the political landscape and local appetite for policy-reform.
We take into consideration multiple stakeholders and credible sources of information that provide to our UNITE Secretariat. We consider this a join approach and therefore rely work closely with subject matter experts, civil society organizations, patient-led organizations, international organizations, philanthropy and the media to provide us with timely action based tools on infectious disease elimination, policies and legislative circumstances in specific countries.
