7 Steps to get a job in the United Nations

Team Summary\u00a0

Working closely with other global funders and partners, the Neglected Tropical Diseases team within the Global Health division funds work to control or eliminate eight specific neglected diseases from the planet.\u00a0 These diseases have a devastating human, economic and social burden impact on over 1.5 billion people living in impoverished communities throughout the developing world but get little attention and funding. Where proven public health interventions exist, we support sustainable ways to improve their delivery. Where they do not, we invest in research, development, and deployment of new interventions, such as vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, and vector control. We also support efforts to accelerate disease control and elimination efforts through coordinated mass drug administration (MDA) campaigns, screen and treat programs, integrated vector control programs, and public-health surveillance systems.


Our Global Health (GH) Division harnesses advances in science and technology to save lives in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We focus on the health problems that have a major impact in LMICs but whose problems are not solved by the market-driven solutions of high-income country economics.\u00a0

Leadership and Culture

We believe that energized people, working well together, fueled by great leadership in an inclusive environment in which they thrive, will do phenomenal things.
