Seeking Endorsements: Comments on ‘Draft Technical Paper’ prepared for the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health
The World Health Organization (WHO) is convening the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health (WCSDH) from 19-21 October 2011 in Rio de Janeiro with the support of the Government of Brazil. The Conference will be organized in accordance with the Resolution 62.14 of the 62nd World Health Assembly and as a follow-up for the work of the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health (CSDH).
The WHO has published a ‘Draft Technical Paper’ on the WCSDH and initiated a consultation around it through inviting online submissions.
The People’s Health Movement (PHM), in association with several public interest groups and networks, wishes to coordinate a collective civil society response to the Draft Technical Paper which we strongly believe is a step back from the report of the CSDH ‘Closing the Gap in a Generation: Health equity through action on social determinants of health’.
We seek endorsements to the attached statement. You may wish to make your endorsement through downloading the endorsement form, filling it in and sending it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Endorsements should be received by 01 PM GMT time on 09th June 2011.
