Leadership in
Global Health
Tool (LiGHT)


The Leadership in Global Health Assessment Tool (LiGHT) is the first quantitative survey of global health leadership within the private sector, offering an objective assessment of leadership characteristics among companies across the health care industry.

LiGHT enables senior executives to see quickly where the company is operating as its best and identify areas with the greatest potential to move the needle on global health challenges.
