RESULTS UK is a partner of ACTION, a global partnership of advocacy organizations working to influence policy and mobilise 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 organisations working to mobilise 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 $3 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.
