Register for PHM_USA First National Meeting, July 28-29, 2011

19 May 2011

The first People’s Health Movement USA National Meeting will be held July 28-29, 2011, at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles CA, in conjunction with the annual assembly of Doctors for Global Health. We invite those who endorse the People’s Carter for Health to participate in identifying our medium-term goals and developing a plan to reach them. This is an opportunity for you to get more involved with the international movement that has set the people’s agenda for global health for the last 12 years.

As you know, People’s Health Movement is a global network of people’s organizations, civil society organizations, NGOs, social activists, health professionals, academics and researchers who believe we can provide health for all by tackling the social and economic underpinnings of health status, and providing community based comprehensive primary health care. PHM in the United States has been working in solidarity with health activists around the world, and promoting solutions emerging internationally as a result of local research and action for health.

We have many challenges both domestically and internationally. At this first national meeting we need your input to make decisions about where to focus our energy and how to take advantage of upcoming opportunities. One of those is the 3rd People’s Health Assembly in Cape Town, South Africa next July. If you have thought about attending the PHA3, you should participate in this meeting.

Soon we will send out a pre-meeting survey to hear from as many people as possible as we develop the agenda.

If you would like to participate but are unable to travel to LA, we will be setting up some kind of virtual participation connection for part of the meeting. Please email [email protected] if you would like to participate virtually.

Discussion, learning, and action across organizations, disciplines, race and class is needed to build the movement to demand for health for all in the US and globally. We will lay a foundation July 28-29 in Los Angeles.

In Solidarity,
