Building a movement for health: get ready for PHA4 while learning from PHM’s experience worldwide

The struggle for health and social justice has a long and proud history that has been driven by diverse social movements involving many individuals and organisations in different contexts. Today, the active role of organised civil society is more necessary than ever.

Based on the interactive manual developed by PHM and Viva Salud, there is now a new section of the PHM website dedicated to movement building. In this area, you can:

  • browse through six key practices of movement building: relationships and values, organisation and strategy, visible actions, participation, networking, learning from experience;
  • access more than 25 case studies of health activism from all over the world;
  • contribute your own experience by submitting a case study.

This interactive material is intended to be an aid in the struggle for health equity, to support movement-building at the country level, and to contribute to the creation and strengthening of a global movement for health.

With PHA4 less than a month away, we will release, twice a week, key messages from the movement building section, inviting you to read, comment and contribute, towards health for all… NOW!
