PHM Right to Health and Health Care Campaign update Aug 2011

Date: 
14 Aug 2011

It is time again to give an update where the campaign has gone since the beginning of this year.

As many of you know, the campaign underwent an internal evaluation. A PHM committee was formed last year. It carried out a survey of around 20 campaign sites in as many countries. Once the results were in, a phone or skype follow-up contact was made to clarify issues and to gather additional information.
This valuable information was used by the committee in repeated skype meetings to draft a document outlining where the campaign is going to go from now on.
The first draft of the document was sent to PHM’s Steering Council for comments.
Based on the comments received, the committee finalized the document and is suggesting a chronogram for the resumption of activities. These are now been sent back to the Steering Council for final approval.
We expect to have this approval shortly and we will then make the document public to our members, particularly to those PHM circles already involved in the campaign and those that had manifested an interest to start the campaign.
The evaluation process has indeed taken longer than we had expected, but the results warrant the wait. Things will re-accelerate from now till PHA3 and in it we will have campaign related activities and meetings.
