OUR VISION AND MISSION

UNITE MISSION AND THEORY OF CHANGE

Our mission is to achieve a collaborative political response to ending infectious diseases as a global health threat; in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and through the leadership of UNITE’s peer-led and international network of parliamentarians.

To ensure a truly global response, we have divided the world into 10 Regional Chapters and will appoint one Chair for each region. Our aim is to achieve representation from our priority countries with at least one parliamentarian from each majority and minority party as members to the UNITE Network. Currently, UNITE is represented with 115 members of parliament from 55 countries.

UNITE contributes to the achievement of political impact towards ending infectious diseases through five key pillars, known as our PRIME Theory of Change.

PROMOTE  political accountability of all stakeholders to end infectious diseases

RAISE political awareness that it is possible to end infectious diseases

INCREASE political advocacy to influence policy changes to end infectious diseases

MOBILIZE political will with actions to end infectious diseases

ENSURE political leadership to change laws and adequate budget allocation to end infectious diseases
