Luke Disney

Executive Director, North Star Alliance

Luke Disney is the executive director of North Star Alliance. He joined North Star in 2007 as director fundraising and communications and became the organization’s first executive director in 2008. Prior to North Star, Luke worked at TNT Express on the Moving the World initiative, a groundbreaking partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme praised by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan as “an excellent example of the way private corporations can cooperate with United Nations agencies to do vital life-saving work.”

North Star Alliance works at the crossroads of disease and mobility to ensure that highly mobile populations, especially truck drivers and their direct and indirect contacts have access to quality health and safety services. North Star is strengthening national health systems by expanding their reach and plugging the gaps through a network of “Roadside Wellness Centres” (RWCs) located at hotspots along major transport corridors in sub-Saharan Africa. North Star’s unique approach unites the transport and public health sectors in a common response to high-impact diseases.
