About ACTION

ACTION is a global partnership of advocacy organizations working to influence policy and mobilize resources to fight diseases of poverty and improve equitable access to health services. ACTION partners work across five continents in both donor and high burden countries.

Founded in 2004, ACTION began as a partnership of civil society organizations working to mobilize new resources against tuberculosis (TB), a disease of poverty that kills one person every 20 seconds. ACTION partners have helped influence leaders to contribute more than $1.4 billion for the global TB fight through bilateral and multilateral funding, including through the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.  

Building off our successes in fighting TB globally, ACTION has expanded its advocacy efforts to include child survival, particularly in the areas of vaccines and undernutrition. Vaccines are one of the cheapest and most effective ways to prevent child deaths, yet 1.5 million children die because they don't have access to routine vaccinations against preventable diseases like measles and pneumonia.

And despite its status as the leading killer of the world’s children, undernutrition programs receive just a fraction of overseas aid funding. ACTION works to ensure donor governments, multilateral mechanisms, and high burden countries invest in the institutions and policies that will ensure every child can grow up healthy and reach their full potential. 

Learn more about our work to fight global tuberculosis, expand access to childhood vaccines, and end undernutrition.

ACTION's Current Focus

Think TB is a thing of the past? Think again.

Someone dies from TB every 20 seconds. That's 1.5 million people each year. The collision of HIV and TB have created a deadly co-epidemic that is rapidly spreading in sub-Saharan Africa. Drug-resistant strains of TB are now spreading around the world - turning TB into an incurable, airborne disease. 

That's why ACTION is influencing leaders at the highest levels to fight TB. By providing resources and investing in new technologies, we can stop TB in our lifetimes.

ACTION partners have helped influence leaders to contribute more than $1.4 billion for the global TB fight through bilateral and multilateral funding, including through the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.

Remember the vaccinations you received as a child? They may have saved your life.

Vaccines are one of the cheapest and most effective ways to prevent child deaths. Yet each year, 1.5 million children die because they don't have access to routine vaccinations agains diseases like measles, pneumonia, and rotavirus.

ACTION is giving policymakers a shot in the arm. In 2011, ACTION helped persuade leaders to pledge $2.1 billion to the GAVI Alliance.

Over five years, GAVI's total funding will prevent more than 3.9 million children in developing countries from dying of vaccine-preventable illnesses. With GAVI's support, they'll get the same vaccinations that children in wealthy countries receive.

What's the biggest killer of children worldwide? A lack of nourishing food. 

Almost half of all child deaths can be linked to undernutrition, and for millions of children chronic undernourishment during the first 1,000 days of life will irreversibly stunt their physical and cognitive development. 

Perhaps the only thing that rivals the shocking individual and economic impact of chronic undernutrition is our collective neglect. Total overseas development assistance directly focused on alleviating undernutrition is a fraction of what is needed. ACTION partners are working to ensure leaders and multilateral institutions give global nutrition the political attention it deserves, with the resources to back up their commitments. 

Learn more about our work to build the political will to end undernutrition. 

We have a great deal of work to do - we hope that you will take ACTION with us!
