Each day over 17,000 children around the world die from preventable malnutrition and disease. 1.2 billion people still live in extreme poverty without access to basic resources, like education and health services, that could enable them to become self-sufficient.
RESULTS advocates programs that try to help alleviate this situation.
We are part of ACTION Partnership.
RESULTS is a partner of ACTION, a global partnership of advocacy organizations working to influence policy and mobilize resources to fight diseases of poverty and achieve equitable access to health. ACTION partners work across five continents in both donor and high burden countries. Founded in 2004, ACTION began as a partnership of independent, locally established civil society organizations working to mobilize new resources against tuberculosis (TB). Building off successes in fighting TB globally, ACTION expanded its efforts to include child survival, with a focus on expanding access to childhood vaccines and increasing the political will and investment needed to fight childhood undernutrition.
Our collective impact:
- In the past six years alone, ACTION has helped generate nearly $9.8 billion in new resources for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB & Malaria.
- Since 2011, ACTION helped persuade leaders to pledge $5 billion to Gavi, the Vaccines Alliance. Since 2000, Gavi has supported countries to immunize half a billion children in the world’s poorest countries.
- ACTION was integral to the successes of the June 2013 Nutrition For Growth summit in London, where ACTION-targeted countries committed $3 billion to scale up the global response to undernutrition.

As an international movement, RESULTS had its beginning in the United States in 1980, when Sam Daley-Harris, a teacher and musician, formed several groups of motivated volunteers in Los Angeles.
We are a large grassroots movement in Australia with dedicated staff advocating on behalf of our causes, and a Board of Directors who support them.
