General Membership

The Self-Care Trailblazer Group operates as a coalition composed of a diverse set of institutional and individual members working to advance the practice of self-care to improve health around the globe.

Members include representatives of multilateral and bilateral organizations, private foundations, governments, civil society, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, advocacy groups, research and academic institutions, and the
private sector.

BECOMING AN SCTG MEMBER

By joining the SCTG, Trailblazers collectively subscribe to a shared vision–advance the evidence and practice of self-care to improve health around the globe–and key principles to guide action.

The SCTG adds value to the work of its members by helping them to accomplish more, collectively, than they could otherwise do on their own. It offers a multi-stakeholder platform to engage with other self-care experts and stakeholders; inform and drive the self-care agenda globally and locally; and share experiences, lessons learned, and evidence to accelerate progress towards universal health coverage (UHC).

SCTG membership grants access to member resources, including a members-only Slack channel for engaging discussions with other partners! To become a member, you must read and agree to the Member Bylaws
