By mobilizing our networks and participating in key national and international advocacy events we reach the decision-makers directly. Securing a policy environment favorable to overall development, especially of poor people, is a key aspect of Eminence’s mission: “creation, promotion, dissemination, and translation of evidence-based knowledge into practice to ensure health justice and developmental sovereignty.” Formation of Non-Communicable Disease Forum (NCD-F), Bangladesh Urban Health Network (BUHN), Common Interest Group against Tobacco (CIGAT), and Bangladesh Civil Society Network for Promoting Nutrition (BCSNPN) has been in response to the imperative health and development needs of the general people of the country. As one of the leading advocates in the field of public health and social development, Eminence is engaged in regular dialogues with government and other national institutions.
