Rabin Martin is the Secretariat for the Private Sector Roundtable for Global Health Security.

What is the PSRT?

The Private Sector Roundtable (PSRT) for Global Health Security mobilizes industry to help countries prevent and prepare for health crises at the local, national and global levels. We are the official voice of the private sector within the global health security community.

Our priority is protecting the health of our employees and their communities, as well as reducing the direct and indirect financial consequences of health emergencies.

The PSRT leverages private sector expertise and resources to mitigate health and development risks and vulnerabilities. We work with countries and multilateral agencies to strengthen the health infrastructure needed to save lives and ensure business continuity.

The PSRT is co-chaired by Alan Tennenberg, Chief Medical Officer Global Public Health, Johnson & Johnson, and Ashling Mulvaney, Global Head Sustainability Strategy & Healthy Heart Africa at AstraZeneca.

 

Our member companies are from diverse industries – health care, communications, energy, finance, technology and logistics – and view global health security as core to their business strategy and long-term sustainability. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PSRT member companies have taken action to leverage their expertise and resources to support global efforts. Find out more here.
