Global Fund Advocates Network
Katy Kydd Wright is a Senior Policy Advisor and coordinates the Global Fund Advocates Network. Katy, who is based in Ottawa, Canada, spent close to a decade working for Canadian Parliamentarians in various roles at the House of Commons. Her work to introduce the first Canadian Access to Medicines regime, adopted in 2004, brought her into the field of community and civil society advocacy in global health. Katy was the Director of Campaigns at RESULTS Canada, where she led global health and poverty-related campaigns. In 2012, shortly after the formal launch of the Global Fund Advocates Network, Katy joined International Civil Society Support to coordinate GFAN and bring together voices to support a fully funded and effective Global Fund. GFAN hosted the Community and Civil Society Platform for the TB High-Level Meeting in 2018, and Katy has been a participant of the Developed Country NGO delegation to the Global Fund board since 2015. Katy joined the Developed Country NGO Delegation to the Stop TB Partnership Board in October 2019.
Joanne Carter is the Executive Director of RESULTS and RESULTS Educational Fund since 2008. She works with key U.S. administration and congressional allies, partner organizations, and technical agencies to orchestrate U.S.A. and international campaigns to tackle major diseases of poverty, increase access to education, expand economic opportunity for the poorest, and reform World Bank and International Monetary Fund policies.
Under her leadership, RESULTS/REF has grown to include chapters now found in every state in the US. In that time, RESULTS was instrumental in the creation and expansion of the Child Survival and Health Programs Fund, expansion of global TB funding, and provisions that require U.S. representatives to the World Bank and IMF to oppose user fees for primary health and education. As founding Project Lead for ACTION, Joanne has helped build this global health advocacy partnership across ten countries on five continents and guide its efforts to help mobilize billions of dollars of financial resources to end diseases of poverty and ensure equitable access to health.
