Communities First Global Collaborative

Building Robust, Equitable and Coordinated Community Health Systems


The Communities First Global Collaborative (“Global Collaborative”) supports community leaders who have been instrumental in tackling health inequities globally and building or transforming public health systems.

The Global Collaborative’s vision is to build a collective voice of community leaders to influence plans, policies and movements in the fight to strengthen public health and community health systems.

We believe that true transformation of health systems for all can only take place through connection, collaboration and deep commitment to local leadership and inclusive leadership development.
