From Savar to Cuenca via Bangalore - Experience of the PHM secretariat team
Reflections on PHM Realities and Future Challenges
This background note is based on the experience of the PHM Secretariat team (hosted by the Community Health Cell (CHC), Bangalore, on behalf of the Jan Swasthya Abhiyan –PHM India) from January 2003 till December 2005. For three years, we were the coordination, organizational and communication hub of the PHM wheel with spokes spreading out in different directions linking us to the founding networks and institutions; the regional and country level focal points; the conveners of various PHM circles, initiatives and campaigns. We were also in touch with all the individuals, organizations, networks and campaign groups who wished to join or be associated with the PHM or wished to seek PHM’s inputs, perspectives or partnership with their specific event, initiative, campaign or document.
Recognising the importance of documenting this experience of the early organizational history of this global movement, we have evolved this short paper as a constructive contribution to the further development of PHM.
