Global Health

RESULTS’ global health work focuses on preventing unnecessary deaths from diseases of poverty and creating healthy communities. Join us in improving child health and nutrition and funding the fight against the leading infectious diseases - AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.

Child Health and Nutrition

Global experts say ending preventable child deaths within a generation is achievable if access to known preventions and treatment to fight the leading killers of children such as pneumonia, diarrhea, and malnutrition are scaled up. RESULTS advocates for access to vaccines, maternal and child nutrition and other interventions aim to end preventable child deaths.

 

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria

Since 2002, this global war chest against the diseases of poverty has treated 4.2 million people living with HIV/AIDS and 9.7 million people of tuberculosis. The Global Fund has also distributed over 310 million insecticide treated bed nets to fight malaria. Every month, these efforts save over 100,000 lives.

 

Tuberculosis

TB is an airborne, infectious disease that still kills 1.4 million people every year. This opportunistic bacterium disproportionately attacks the poor and the most vulnerable. TB is the leading killer of people living with HIV. RESULTS advocates for bilateral TB funding to both treat and prevent this disease.
