Last year, the world signed up to the Global Goals, an ambitious but achievable agenda for change by 2030. This year, we have seen some incredible successes despite some big challenges. You’ve helped firm up support among parliamentarians for the UK’s spending 0.7% of our national income on aid; and you’ve pushed for – and got – a very significant UK contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. That means that you’ve helped to save millions more lives.
In 2017, there will be more to do. RESULTS will continue to campaign for everyone to have access to health, education and economic opportunities, no matter where they live. We will be working on three very important issues on which your campaigning can have real impact:
- Education for all, pushing for a strong replenishment of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE)
- Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), as infectious diseases such as TB evolve to resist current drugs
- Withdrawal of donors support from newly middle-income countries, risking people being left without the health services they need.
Check out this month's action materials, which introduce these campaigns to you. Please the information to help you to plan your activities for the coming year.
