Medact does not provide frontline clinical care or humanitarian relief. But it exists to promote a vision of human rights medicine. It works to restore the function of the health system as a foundation for societal well-being and a platform for the expression of ethical behaviour. It acts to restore public interest to the heart of health policy.
Join us for our 2020 gathering to explore the interlinked societal and political structures which damage health and how health workers can use their skills and their social mandate to create change for good.
Hear the Medact team explain how our vision for a human right to health forms a common thread through all our work areas.
We need your help to build our dynamic movement of health workers and activists
