Each year Results hosts an inspiring celebration to acknowledge and recognise the outstanding Advocates, parliamentarians, journalists, and partner organisations helping end global poverty. The theme for the event is ‘Where to now – how does the Asia Pacific region recover from the impacts of COVID-19’.
The 2021 Leadership Awards will be held on the evening of Wednesday 10 November from 7 - 8 pm AEDT. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s event will be held in person (COVID-19 restrictions permitting) and virtually via Zoom.
We are honoured to welcome two world leaders to share their insights.
Stephen Howes is a Professor of Economics at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University, and Director of the Development Policy Centre. Stephen has a vast range of experience throughout the international development sector, previously working at the Australian Agency for International Development and the World Bank as Lead Economist for India.
We are also very excited to be welcoming a speaker from Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance!
Drawing on the strength of its partners; World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Gavi plays a critical role in strengthening primary health care and increasing the equitable and sustainable use of vaccines.
By improving access to new and under-used vaccines for millions of the most vulnerable children, the Vaccine Alliance is transforming the lives of individuals, helping to boost the economies of lower-income countries and making the world safer for everyone.
Nominations came from Volunteers, Staff and Board members of Results and we thank everyone nominated for their substantial contribution to our advocacy and efforts to increase investment in Australian aid to combat the medical and economic ravages of polio, TB and childhood under-nutrition.
Parliamentarians make significant contributions to Results work as hard-working and influential leaders, members of the Parliamentary TB Caucus, which informs MPs and Senators of the value of funding research, diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis, and supporters in Parliament of immunisation programs that protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases including Polio, pneumonia, diarrhoea, and measles, nutrition programs and support for COVID 19 programs.
Advocates and Volunteers are our lifeblood – without them, we would achieve little – they are deeply committed to Results and are valued highly by Results. They write letters; they write to their MP; they visit their MP and they trek to Canberra to meet their MP and senators. Some Volunteers have been supporting Results since we were established more than 30 years ago.
Advocates and Volunteers are our lifeblood – without them, we would achieve little – they are deeply committed to Results and are valued highly by Results. They write letters; they write to their MP; they visit their MP and they trek to Canberra to meet their MP and senators. As an Advocate young people learn skills readily applicable and valuable in their careers. Some Volunteers also get out and run or cycle bringing sponsorship funds to support our work.
Results rely heavily on the support of the media in bringing important stories about global health to the attention of the Australian Public. They also publish letters from our Advocates highlighting the vital impact and value of Australian Aid.
Without NFP partners in campaigning and advocacy, we would have a small voice – we are more powerful and effective when we work with capable and hardworking partners – each organisation has our speciality and we work together to eliminate global poverty.
Our valuable corporate partners provide us with direct funds, substantial discounts and in-kind donations for which we are immensely grateful. Our corporate partners recognise that their investment in an incredibly efficient organisation is value for money. Results operates on very limited funds converting it to 300 times its original value each year through advocacy for global health investments in reliable and trustworthy global institutions including the Global Fund and Gavi the Vaccine alliance.
