Target Case studies

End the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected

tropical diseases            

Malaria Consortium is an NGO addressing communicable diseases across Africa and Asia. We provide on going pro bono support, such as documenting a drug administration project to control seven neglected topical diseases in South Sudan, and risk management advice.

Achieve universal access to sexual and reproductive health care

services

We undertook a study for the Center for Reproductive Rights into how health, humanitarian and development organisations and UN agencies have responded to sexual and reproductive health issues and provided interventions in conflict regions. We also provided research on how UN human rights bodies have sought accountability for sexual violence perpetrated against women and girls in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria. This support is helping the Center expand its work addressing the consequences of sexual violence and providing sexual and reproductive health services in conflict regions.
Increase health financing We worked jointly with Weil, Gotshal & Manges on the ground-breaking £20 million bond issue for Scope, which was awarded CSR Initiative of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2012. The Scope Bond Programme is listed on Luxembourg’s MTF exchange and operates in a manner similar to a traditional corporate bond programme. The proceeds of the issue are being used by Scope to invest in its income generation activities, including expanding its network of charity shops. Volunteers across our structured finance, tax, financial regulation and investment management practices in London and Luxembourg volunteered their time acting for the arranger of the bond issue.
