Topping $3.1 Billion in 2016, The Task Force for Global Health quickly outgrew its Swanton Way office in Decatur and purchased a larger building from DeKalb County at 330 W. Ponce de Leon Ave. The $24 million improvement project was kicked off by a $10-million grant from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation and a $2-million gift from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. The Task Force for Global Health is an international, nonprofit organization that works to improve health of people most in need, primarily in developing countries. Founded in 1984 by global health pioneer Dr. William Foege, The Task Force consists of eight programs focused on neglected tropical diseases, vaccines, field epidemiology, public health informatics, and health workforce development.
The new 90,000 SF, 6-Story headquarters, designed by Warner Summers, is expected to help raise metro Atlanta’s visibility as a center for global health, and provide offices and function space to host the the world’s collective effort to eradicate global diseases. We are excited to share images of the new Task Force offices and support their global mission.
