As we’ve seen in Australia, it’s never been more important to tackle COVID-19 together.
While Australia has one of the world’s best healthcare systems, many of our neighbours around the world are ill-equipped for a pandemic.
With no fences standing between any of us and COVID-19, we must stand in solidarity with all our neighbours, and encourage our government to provide vital support to vulnerable nations.
This doesn’t end for anyone until it ends for everyone.
“COVID-19 could push over 70 million people into extreme poverty”
While Australia has one of the world’s best healthcare systems, too many of our global neighbours are far worse off. In fact, they’re in crisis. Thankfully we can help.
Will we be the generation that helped end COVID for everyone? Or just ourselves?
With your support the Australian Government can partner with global institutions, Australian NGOs and our regional neighbours, to address the worst impacts of COVID-19 on the world’s most vulnerable nations and communities.
We have some ideas around how to do this:
End the Pandemic
Invest a further $500 million in the global effort to ensure equitable access to safe and effective COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines.
Strengthen health systems in our region
Invest $1 billion to address the secondary health impacts of the pandemic in our region including; HIV, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Child & Maternal Health and more, while also insuring against future crises.
Provide an emergency $150 million famine prevention package to address rising hunger and child malnutrition.
