It is independent of powerful interest groups. It sees health through the lens of social justice.
We promote peace and disarmament. We challenge the power of the military-industrial complex and examine the social and health impacts of war.
We want a fair and ecologically-sensitive economics. We challenge trade, investment and financial systems that are unjust and harmful.
We seek a healthy planet and climate protection. We challenge our dependence on fossil fuels and campaign for sustainable models of development.
We advance a rights-based and progressive model of medicine and health care. We challenge undue corporate and commercial influence over health policy.
