The Research4Life governance is as simple and as efficiently structured as possible, with progress monitored and future developments agreed at the annual General Partners Meeting (GPM). The GPM is the governing and authoritative body of Research4Life where decision are taken. The meeting designates temporary teams to address particular strategic and tactical issues.

In addition, the Executive Council represents the major contributing partners and takes ongoing operational decisions between General Partners Meetings. Several Teams are assigned by the executive council and report back to it:  Capacity Development, Communications and Marketing, Eligibility, Finance, Fundraising and Technology.

The Research4Life Partnership established a Code of Conduct that applies to all those conducting work for Research4Life and is intended to act as guidance alongside employers’ codes of conduct.
