Actions

Each month we share a well-researched campaign action with our grassroots network. Our action materials include the context of the campaign, additional information, tips and guidance. The 'call to action' each month is often to write to, and engage with MPs and Government Ministers. Who you write to depends on who RESULTS UK policy and parliamentary teams think we can influence the most! We have guides available to help you take these actions. To receive our campaigns and updates, subscribe to our mailing list.

Meanwhile, global spending on education is declining just when it is needed most.

Health workers are the life blood of a health system.

Tuberculosis is not just a threat to developing countries; nearly every single country in the world has some reported incidence of the disease. This airborne disease doesn't respect national boundaries or discriminate by class, gender or ethnicity. As the old saying goes 'TB anywhere is TB everywhere'. The UK is no more protected against TB than any other country and, in fact, rates of the disease have been rising here year on year since the mid 1970's. With over 9000 new cases of the disease every year, the UK has been described as 'the TB capital of Western Europe'.

We have been campaigning on the issue of TB among Southern Africa's goldminers for the past 18 months, advocating for a strong regional response supported by international actors like the UK and the World Bank.
