The Technical Reference Group (TRG) provides strategic advice to inform the Health Security Initiative’s priorities, policies and investment decisions. TRG members have experience and expertise across a broad range of fields relevant to the Initiative. These include health policy and systems research, medical research, infectious disease surveillance and control, and international development programming. Members have broad international professional networks and extensive experience with international organisations including the World Bank, the World Health Organisation and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. TRG members will meet as a group twice a year and individuals will also provide their expertise on specific issues on request. Members will help to shape the initiative, review its progress, recommend adjustments as required, and amplify its reach and impact by calling on their networks.
