Advocacy: strategy to influence policy makers when they make laws and regulations, distribute resources, and make other decisions that affect peoples' lives. Advocacy is essentially about three things:
1. Creating policies where they are needed when none exist.
2. Reforming harmful or ineffective policies.
3. Ensuring good policies are implemented and enforced.
The goal of advocacy is policy change.
