Our Impact

“Results has a such a lean and efficient model… it’s remarkable how much they’ve done.”
- Jim Yong Kim, former president, World Bank


With head, hands and heart, our advocates and changemakers have contributed to some of the world’s biggest wins in the fight to end global poverty. From mobilising billions of dollars to alleviate diseases of poverty such as tuberculosis and polio, to ensuring millions more children have access to basic education – Results lives up to its name, and gets results.


In 2022 Results Australia:

  • Secured a $100 million Government commitment to the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI). CEPI is an innovative global partnership working to accelerate the development of vaccines against epidemic and pandemic threats. Crucially, as epidemics disproportionately affect low-income countries, CEPI aims to ensure that the price of a vaccine is never a barrier to access, and they are available to populations who are in the most need.

  • Led ‘Light Up Red', which saw over 50 locations throughout Australia turn red for World TB Day

  • Supported efforts to secure a $266 million Government commitment to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria. The Global Fund has saved over 50 million lives since 2002 and unites the world to build a healthier, safer and equitable future for all. Every year, the Global Fund provides over 23 million people with antiretroviral therapy for HIV, treats over five million people with TB and distributes over 133 million mosquito nets to prevent malaria.

  • Secured a $43.55 million Government commitment to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI). GPEI has made huge progress in protecting children and the world’s most vulnerable populations from this debilitating disease. Since GPEI was founded, polio has decreased by 99.9%; 20 million people are walking today who would otherwise be paralysed and more than 1.5 million people have been saved from the disease. GPEI remains committed to tackling polio and eliminating it completely.

  • Launched our Fellowship Program which saw 11 extraordinary young Australians with a passion for justice and health equity, embark on a 10-month advocacy training and development journey.

  • Watched our incredible cohort of Advocates meet with MPs and Parliamentarians to call for Government investment in crucial anti-poverty initiatives.

Our history of impact

Results for a better world

Icon 1.png

The global mortality rate for under-fives has declined from 93 per 1000 births (1990) to 38 per 1000 (2019). The reduction in the child mortality rate for Australia has been proportionate (from 9.2 in 1990 to 3.6 in 2019).

44 million lives have been saved (as of the end of 2020) through health programs supported by the Global Fund (Results Australia is a key driver of the Australian Government commitment of the Global Fund — leveraging $1 billion from 2002 – present).

The Global Partnership for Education program (which Results advocates for) has successfully allowed 160 million more children to attend schools in partner countries. 70% of partner countries have improved their learning outcomes data, and twice as many girls are attending school.

Icon 10.png

4.7 million people with TB were treated in countries where the Global Fund invested in 2020 (quadrupled from 1 million people in 2015).

Icon 2.png

The number of primary-school-age children out of school has declined from over 100 million (1990) to 59 million (2019).

Icon 6.png

The incidence of diseases which affect children primarily — malaria and polio — have decreased dramatically (and polio has almost been eradicated).

Icon 5.png

Childhood vaccination rates have increased significantly (proportion of children receiving the full course of diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (DTP) vaccine) from 75% to 86%. Vaccines to protect against the two leading causes of child mortality –pneumonia and diarrhoea – are now widely available.

Icon 8.png

GPEI (Global Polio Eradication Initiative which Results Australia advocates for) has reduced the global incidence of polio by more than 99% since 1988. More than 10 million people are walking today who otherwise would have been paralysed.

The $100 million Australian Government commitment to the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) will facilitate more equitable access to life-saving COVID-19 vaccines in developing countries with remote populations.
