Title: Global Health Watch


1
Global Health Watch
  • Mobilising the global health and social justice
    movement around an
  • alternative World Health Report

2
What would be alternative about GHW?
  • Counter-balances the prevailing orthodoxy around
    market-based health care reforms shrinking
    public sectors and the commercialisation and
    commodification of health and health care
  • Shift from technocratic, disease-based approaches
    towards approaches that recognise the importance
    of inclusive and equitable health systems and of
    multi-sectoral action
  • Monitors the performance of key global health and
    health-related institutions
  • Challenges the influence of commercial interests

We also want the Watch to...
  • Explicitly and concretely link health NGOs and
    networks with those concerned with environment,
    international finance, agriculture and food
    security, war, housing, land rights, conflict and
    education
  • Create a more vibrant global civil society in
    health
  • Strengthen the links between socially conscious
    non-government and civil society organisations
    across all regions of the world
  • Provide a forum for magnifying the voice of the
    poor and vulnerable and those who advocate for
    them
  • Provide positive alternatives
