PHA5: Peoples of the world in action for health

The People’s Health Movement, Health rights activists and organizations, health workers, affiliated networks and partners from all corners of the world, joined to celebrate the 5th People’s Health Assembly in Mar del Plata, Argentina, in April 2024.

In its assembly, the People’s Health Movement stood against human rights and international humanitarian law violations in the recent assaults on health rights, notably under the shadow of war, genocide, forced migration and crises in different parts of the world.

The Movement raised its voice against the overwhelming control of transnational corporations over the global economy, health, and welfare systems. 

In a stand against the corporatization, marketization, and colonization of public goods, PHM spotlighted the dire consequences of corporate dominance, emphasizing the pressing need for systemic change.

The PHM highlighted the profound role of women in the fight for health, peace, and gender justice. And embraced “Buen Vivir” as a means and struggle for Health For All.The Fifth People's  Health Assembly stands as a testament to the power of collective action in the relentless pursuit of a healthier, more equitable world for all.
