Advocacy

We fight for some of the world's most vulnerable and marginalized communities and defend their rights and interests.

We do so through visual media, opinion pieces, open letters, declarations, seminars, social media and more, and we engage in collaborative advocacy work with other civil society organizations that share our cause.

The main aims of our advocacy work are to promote just, democratic and transparent global health and development governance, and sufficient, equitable and locally accountable global health and development financing. We want the international development agenda to start with the needs of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people, not the ideas and interests of developed country stakeholders. This requires a radical shift in current development practice, and we promote this through active political advocacy work and by leading by example.
