International ActivitiesInternational Activities of the U.S. National Academies

Here at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, we promote the use of science, engineering, and medicine to enhance the security and well-being of people throughout the world and to ease disparities in human welfare. To accomplish this, we cooperate with partner organizations and scientific communities internationally. We also work to increase the capacity of both individual national academies and regional and global networks of academies to provide evidence-based advice to their governments, policy makers, and the public, thus strengthening and shaping policy and programs worldwide.
