The Open Society Foundations work to ensure that global funding for health is raised, allocated, and used in ways that meet the health needs of marginalized persons. In particular, global funding should be used to strengthen civil society engagement in developing health policies that promote and respect human rights and lead to greater accountability and transparency.
