champions

we are building a world of empowered citizens and governments that take action - change is possible

Our champions are those individuals that work alongside us as volunteers and as advocates to help us leverage resources, keep momentum, and raise the profile for the policies and the people that need support. Their dedication to raising their voices for a world without extreme poverty inspires us and drives our efforts to continue to make meaningful impact.
We partner with people from around the world that have overcome infectious diseases, gender discrimination, and economic disparity. They use their life-changing experience to bring awareness to the global systems, systemic inequalities, and behavioural stigmas that prevent people from getting the care and attention that they need to survive and thrive.

issue experts

From India to Africa; North America to Asia, our issue experts raise their voices from where they live, and work with our staff and volunteers in Canada to educate and propel action with government decision makers to bring about change.
Raise awareness. Speak out. There are people who don’t have a voice, and if you do, your duty is to speak out and support people who don’t have their voices.

We are so close to eradicating polio; we have never been this close. So now is the perfect time to do that final push and eradicate this disease once and for all.

Kate O’Brien, TB Survivor, 
New York City (NY)

To act like diseases care about borders is really, really dumb. It’s shortsighted. It’s weird that we act isolationist about tuberculosis in the United States.

“I thought [TB] was … an old school disease that people got a long time ago. I thought that it was like smallpox or something; like they had cured it and it had largely gone away, because it had gone away in my world.”

“It was hard to get a sense of urgency from my doctors. I was pregnant so there’s just this expectation of misery and complaining because of it. It was hard to get definitive answers.”

“Nobody thought of TB despite the fact that I was saying ‘I’m coughing up blood, I have night sweats, I have no appetite, I just kinda want to lay down all day’; nobody thought tuberculosis, not a single person.”

“I really trusted my doctors to tell me what was going on but they didn’t seem to have a sense of urgency, and I knew that something was very wrong. It was very hard for me.”

“I remember when they told me I had tuberculosis in the ICU and just being so happy and so relieved because I was like ‘That’s curable! That is something they can treat and cure!’ Emotionally I was in a great place … because I finally had a diagnosis. I was finally going to be on a road to feeling better, and they might save my baby.”

“To act like diseases care about borders is really, really dumb. It’s shortsighted. It’s weird that we act isolationist about tuberculosis in the United States.”

“People need to know how many people die from tuberculosis even though we have a cure for it. When you think about what an injustice that is - that this is a curable disease - that keeps me up at night. It just makes me crazy when I think that 1.6 million people die of a disease that we have a cure for. It should make you nuts. It’s a huge injustice.”

Members of Parliament

We collaborate with many federal government decision makers (Members of Parliament (MPs), Ministers, Senators) who are working hard for the best interests of their constituents - those Canadian citizens that live, work and play in their riding - and genuinely care about the issues that are of most concern to them.

See all the latest actions with our MPs across Canada here.

Are you a federal government decision maker that wants to learn more? Contact us.

These MPs meet and correspond with Results staff and volunteers to listen to the issues that affect people living in poverty, and are supportive about the solutions required that will make the most impact. With them, we create meaningful change within the Canadian government by raising awareness on Parliament Hill, forging global partnerships, and creating networks and connections with other leaders and decision makers.
I got involved in tuberculosis work because a bunch of Results volunteers came to me. They were convincing, well informed and they were persistent.
