We pick our monthly actions and ongoing campaigns based on strategic opportunity, political climate, context, and impact. More specifically, our issues are usually ones where there is a proven, cost-effective solution and for which there are not many champions. For example, many groups advocate for greater HIV support and treatment; we focus our HIV advocacy on increasing accessibility to the $20 DOTS cure for tuberculosis which is the number one opportunistic infection killing HIV-infected persons in the developing world.
We believe that the journey to the world that we want to create is a long one, but that we will only get there if we take the steps. For every issue we take on, our grassroots learn about and focus their energy on the entry point, or steps, that will lead us to a world free of poverty.
