Right to Health campaign: A better future with #PublicHealth4All

April 13, 2017
Join PSI's campaign for the Human Right to Health - the global campaign to influence the formulation and implementation of policies leading to Universal Public Health Coverage (UPHC). Now is the time to unite and fight for #PublicHealth4All.

PSI  launched its global campaign for the Human Right to Health at the Health and Social Care Services Task Force meeting held in Geneva on 12-13 December. The campaign aims at building a global movement to influence policies towards attaining Universal Public Health Coverage (UPHC).

"A lack of basic provision of healthcare contributes to higher inequality and extreme poverty in society. There is a critical need for universal public health coverage, for health as a human right to be realisable. However, what we have seen is quite the contrary. Over the past few decades, the health and social care sector has been one of the main targets in significant restructuring, with increasing for-profit private interests’ involvement in the provision of health services, with explicit support of governments formulated as health reforms. Now is the time for us to unite and fight for health for all, as a significant domain of our struggle for people over profit. United and determined, we will win." - Rosa Pavanelli, PSI General Secretary.

PSI will promote the aims and objectives of this campaign with every legitimate means including mass mobilisation of members of its affiliates for days of action, lobbying governments, regional institutions and international organisations, building alliances and forging coalitions, research and affiliates capacity-building and developing proposals for laws, policies and regulations that would bring to birth quality public health for all and guarantee a better future for humankind.
