The Trinity Challenge is delighted to announce Hala Audi as our first Chief Executive Officer. Hala joins us on secondment from the Cabinet Office in the UK civil service. She will work with Dame Sally Davies and our trustees to lead The Trinity Challenge to strengthen global efforts to better identify, respond to, and recover from health emergencies.
Hala brings to the Challenge her passion and expertise to improve health outcomes by applying a social and economics lens to solve some of the most complex global issues. She led the Review on AMR chaired by Jim O’Neill and commissioned by the UK Prime Minister and the Wellcome Trust in 2014. The Review helped transform global awareness of the problem of drug resistance, increase fivefold the level of public and private investment for scientific research in the field, and produced authoritative micro and macro-economic modelling and policy proposals now being implemented nationally and discussed by key decision makers including in the G20 and the UN to reach global agreement.
Hala’s twenty-year career spans the law (Skadden, Arps) and government (HM Treasury in the UK), with expertise in international law, public spending, infrastructure, and complex programmes delivery.
Hala was born in Beirut where she goes back regularly, and grew up in Paris. She lives in London with her family.
Prospective applicants are invited to bring forward their ideas now and form collaborations with our network of Members, including organisations from across business, academia and the social sector.
Results of collaborative and independent work are due for submission on April 15 to be eligible for review and judging in the inaugural round of The Trinity Challenge, which awards a prize fund of £6M.
