Launch of the MAPGuide

We are excited to announce the launch of the GHIAA Master Alliance Provisions Guide (MAPGuide). The MAPGuide is a new tool to help practitioners and policymakers access a curated collection of actual and template contractual provisions from global health agreements that address key principles upon which partnerships are built. The MAPGuide will be updated regularly, and we are seeking additional content in the form of full agreements or individual agreement provisions.
