Global Health Watch 4 – An Alternative World Health Report


The Global Health Watch is perceived widely as the definitive voice for an alternate discourse on health and health care. This 4th edition covers a range of issues that currently impact on health, including the present political and economic architecture in a fast changing and globalised world; a political assessment and concrete country experiences regarding the drive towards UHC; broader determinants of health such as gender based violence and access to water; stories of struggles, actions and change; and a scrutiny of a range of global institutions and processes. It integrates rigorous analysis, alternative proposals and stories of struggles and change to present a compelling case for the imperative to work for a radical transformation of the way we approach actions and policies on health.

Global Health Watch 4 will be officially launched in the UK on the 15th of November at the Medact Forum. We will be selling copies on the day with all the proceeds going to Medact. To view the programme and book your ticket please click here.
