ACTION Global Health Advocacy Partnership
Results Australia is a partner of ACTION, a partnership of locally rooted organizations around the world that advocate for life-saving care for millions of people who are threatened by preventable diseases.
The tuberculosis epidemic, low vaccination rates, and poor child nutrition disproportionately affect the world’s most vulnerable people. Affected and donor countries can end diseases of poverty and improve quality of life for all people if they step up funding and create more effective policies.
We work as equal partners to bring together efforts across borders to increase investments and build political support for global health. Over the last six years alone, ACTION partners have helped bring $9.8 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; $5 billion for Gavi, the Vaccines Alliance, to support poor countries in immunising half a billion children in 2015; and $3 billion for the long-neglected fight against undernutrition since 2013.
