Amplify More Voices
ACTION works to amplify more voices, from more places. We do so by expanding the number of champions on global health policy and financing and increasing their influence by connecting them with evidence, advocacy tools, media engagement skills, and specific advocacy opportunities.
We train individuals affected by key health issues to participate more fully in policy and media engagement. We support parliamentarians as allies, champions, and partners in our work. ACTION works strategically with a small number of celebrity champions to open doors that advocates then follow up on, builds long-term relationships with media and engages regional policymakers and at times private sector champions to reinforce our advocacy to national governments.
ACTION works with other advocacy communities—across specific health issues and for broader health and development goals—to improve the quality of communications by aligning messages and strategies that support effective, evidence-based advocacy (for example, by providing toolkits).
