The People’s Health Assembly (PHA) is a global event bringing together health activists from across the world to share experiences, analyse the global health situation, and develop civil society positions that promote health for all. It is an opportunity to reassess, redirect and re-inspire ourselves.
PHA3 is not just about developing our movement. It is also about impacting directly on the struggle for social justice: on health for all, on decent living conditions for all, on work in dignity for all, on equity and on environmental justice.
PHA takes place approximately every 5 years: PHA1 was held in Dhaka (Bangladesh, 2000), PHA2 in Cuenca (Ecuador, 2005). During the first PHA, the People’s Charter for Health was developed.
The Third People’s Health Assembly will take place in the second half of July 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa. Exact dates to be confirmed.
PHM members from around the world are encouraged to start pre-assembly mobilisation activities leading up to the PHA3 ensuring strong local and regional positions!
Also, join the PHA3 Facebook group and invite health activists from all over the world to be part of this group to be updated on latest developments with regards to local mobilization activities leading up to the PHA3, to share how your local PHM is preparing and to share ideas for mobilisation, testimonies and success stories!
