Lead Advocacy Group.
Joining our State/Territory Lead Advocacy Group is one of the best ways to experience the RESULTS advocacy journey.
Lead Advocacy Groups are organised at a State/Territory level and consist of a group coordinator and group members. Our group members come from all walks of life and bring unique skill sets in amplifying our voice and building a strong and sustainable grassroots movement to end global poverty.
Together, they lead campaign actions of engaging with relevant and strategic MPs and Senators in their own State/Territory. They also organise various opportunities to engage with the media and their community to raise awareness about ending global poverty.
If you’re interested in being connected with our groups, please contact us directly at email@example.com.
In 2019, our Lead Advocacy Groups met with more than 25 Parliamentarians about issues such as tuberculosis and polio. Our efforts led to the Australian government pledging $270 million to multilateral international development initiatives such as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
In early 2020, we advocated for children everywhere to have access to live-saving vaccines such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and polio. Our advocacy ensured that Australia continued to invest in Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance – the public-private partnership which provides vaccines to the world’s poorest countries at a much lower price through market-shaping. Gavi plans to save a further 7-8 million children and redirect some of these funds to responding to COVID-19.
Currently, we are advocating to protect the world’s most vulnerable from the impact of COVID-19 and continue our investment in infectious diseases like tuberculosis.
