Members of the Alliance connect, share and collaborate both bilaterally and through events and activities provided by the GADiC secretariat, hosted at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative in Boston and linked to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. At present, the main collaborative activities of the members have been grouped into the four workstreams, each of which has appointed a working group lead.

The work of the secretariat is governed by an advisory board made up of geographically diverse representatives from WHO, NGOs and academic public health institutes. Members of the advisory board receive no compensation or incentives for their work and have no competing interests.
