About the organisation
RESULTS International (Australia) is a not for profit and forms part of an international, non-partisan advocacy network that has been working in Australia for more than 30 years through a combination of staff led and volunteer driven advocacy connecting at grassroots, national and global levels.
Through a focus on a range of poverty related issues, we work with parliamentarians, the media and members of the community to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. This includes things like pushing for an increase to the overseas aid budget and increased pledges to multilateral bodies that work on global health and poverty alleviation.
Our volunteers form the backbone of RESULTS and they are passionate, committed everyday people who receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates advising decision makers and guiding them towards decisions that improve access to such things as education, health, and economic opportunity for people living in the poorest parts of the world.
At the global level we work closely with our partners at ACTION to improve equitable access to health and within Australia we act as a Secretariat to the Australian TB Caucus.
We are highly respected for our policy and advocacy work and have a profile within the Australian Parliament and the development sphere that exceeds our modest size.
