People’s Health Dispatch

A fortnightly bulletin published by the People’s Health Movement and international media organisation People’s Dispatch. We focus on the politics of health and struggle for the right to health, including actions organised by workers in the sector. The aim is to highlight people’s resistance to commodification of health and radical analyses of politics around it, especially in the Global South.
