While Australia has one of the world’s best healthcare systems, too many of our global neighbours are far worse off. In fact, they’re in crisis. Thankfully we can help.

Will we be the generation that helped end COVID for everyone? Or just ourselves?

The Ask

With your support the Australian Government can partner with global institutions, Australian NGOs and our regional neighbours, to address the worst impacts of COVID-19 on the world’s most vulnerable nations and communities.

We have some ideas around how to do this:

1. End the Pandemic.

Invest a further $500 million in the global effort to ensure equitable access to safe and effective COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines.

2. Strengthen Health Systems in our Region.

Invest $1 billion to address the secondary health impacts of the pandemic in our region including; HIV, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Child & Maternal Health and more, while also insuring against future crises.
