The Struggle for Health: an emancipatory approach in the area of neoliberal globalisation

This booklet has its origins in a meeting in autumn 2016, attended by over thirty activists, researchers and health professionals from Africa, Latin America, Asia, Europe and North America. After intensive discussions and debates the meeting concluded unanimously that the struggle for health is a political struggle which challenges the fundamental practices of our society and the trends which shape them. These are the chapters:

  • Globalization: Impact on people’s health
  • The social dimensions of health
  • Commodification of health: the challenge facing health systems
  • Building a global movement for health
