Join Medact, Saferworld, Kings College London and others for a two- day forum on health and conflict in November of this year.
Medact is a charity for health professionals and others working to improve health worldwide.
It conducts research and analysis.
It campaigns and lobbies.
It educates and informs.
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.
