Membership

GHSA was launched in February 2014. Since then, membership in GHSA has grown to include over 50 countries, each committed to leading or contributing to one or more Action Packages. GHSA is coordinated by a multilateral Steering Group of 10 countries: Canada, Chile, Finland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Kenya, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Republic of Korea, and the United States. WHO, FAO, OIE, and other international organizations serve as advisors to this Steering Group.

Membership is open to all countries, recognizing that GHSA is an action-oriented initiative where members focus their efforts on achieving specific targets. All GHSA countries have flexibility in how they address their commitments, with countries working nationally, regionally, and/or globally toward the common targets. A complete list of GHSA member countries can be found below,

Countries interested in joining GHSA should contact the Italian Secretariat. New commitments should be addressed to the current GHSA Chair, noting which Action Package(s) you would like to join and providing points of contact at both the technical and political level.

For more information, please contact the Italian Secretariat (ghsaitaly@sanita.it).
