What do we do?

Our activities include:

  • Hosting an open space to share, discuss and disseminate international, regional, national and local news, research and innovative solutions to avoidable deaths (visit our interactive Facebook page, which encourages discussion).
  • Organising and facilitating conferences and seminars on avoidable deaths to foster trans-disciplinary ideas and solutions.
  • Promoting state and non-state collaboration through North-South, South-South and triangular cooperation in order to advance the agenda of avoidable deaths.
  • Advocating the agenda of mainstreaming avoidable deaths at the heart of all disaster and development activities in low and middle-income countries.
  • Publishing an annual newsletter.
  • Actively soliciting and securing private and public funds to promote the above activities.
