Global Access in Action (GAiA) is a non-profit organization, based at Harvard Law School, whose primary mission is improving public health in low and middle-income countries. In our work, we try to adhere to the following principles:

Pragmatism | We seek to identify reforms that will have meaningful impact and can be readily implemented.

Interdisciplinarity | We try to integrate insights derived from the fields of law, medicine, politics, and moral philosophy

Multi-institutional Solutions | We look for ways of efficiently combining legal reform, initiatives by nongovernmental actors, and for-profit ventures by private firms. 

Independence | We are not compensated for our work and do not have stakes in the institutional solutions we recommend and help to implement.
