IF Campaign - Enough food for everyone
In 2013, the government has promised to provide 0.7% of national income for aid and to host a Hunger Summit. The IF campaign is a multi-agency advocacy initiative, aiming to ensure that the UK government keeps to this commitment and places tackling hunger as a central issue at the G8 summit In June 2013.
The Access Campaign works to improve access to existing treatments and stimulating the development of newer and better medical tools that take into account the needs of people in poor countries. It pushes for continued improvements in medical practice. The campaign also supports efforts to reshape the way medical research and development is funded so that medical innovation serves those most in need and is not simply market-driven as at present. Current priorities include: nutrition, HIV/AIDS, TB, vaccines, malaria, access and innovation, neglected diseases.
