Our vision is a world where strong, coordinated country-based advocacy is a driving force for improvements in health and development.
As country-based advocacy plays a growing role in advancing policy change and ensuring accountability for health and development in the Global South, advocates and donors are increasingly seeking ways to improve their impact. The Advocacy Accelerator works to strengthen advocacy capacity, alignment, and impact by providing online and in-person platforms for advocates and their supporters to share evidence, approaches, and expertise.

Provide
Providing in-person and online platforms for country-based advocates and their supporters to share experiences, evidence, and approaches.
Offer
Supporting interactive spaces that foster and promote learning within and across sectors and regions.
Gather
Gathering and sharing data, research, and lessons learned across the field of advocacy.
