The Directorate-General for Global Affairs, Culture, Education and International Development, in liaison with the relevant administrations and in partnership with relevant international organizations and other actors, defines and implements French intervention on global issues, sustainable development, international cooperation, policy influence and major sectoral policies, particularly in multilateral fora within its areas of competence.

Within the DGM, the subdirectorate for human development is directly responsible for leading and monitoring L'Initiative, and chairs the related committees.

It also leads the network of regional advisers on global health (CRSM) and international technical experts (ETI) in health who play a major role in creating synergy between French initiatives on the ground and monitoring country progress in combating pandemics.

Ambassador for Global Health
Contenu du bloc

The Ambassador acts on behalf of the Ministry of Solidarity and Health and the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs. She oversees implementation of France's global health strategy and represents the country within major international organizations working to combat pandemics - the Global Fund and Unitaid (an agency that accelerates the availability of more effective and cheaper innovations to better treat, diagnose and prevent).

The Ambassador played an important role in the preparation of the 6th Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund, which took place in October 2019 in Lyon, with the aim of mobilizing the international community to raise funds for the fight against pandemics. France fully exercised its leadership and thus contributed to the achievement of the goals: $14 billion in pledges were collected, an amount never before reached by a multilateral health organization. This event is one of the key steps to achieving the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.
