Rosa Pavanelli, PSI General Secretary

A major focus of this edition is the need to go beyond the tokenism which favours profit-making for health companies of different sorts over the provision of quality health for all, presented as “universal health coverage.” A position the PSI has held for several years is that quality health for all is what we need, and this is possible only when it is publicly delivered.

Considering the abundant wealth available to humankind and major advances made in healthcare delivery, this situation is indefensible.
