Declaration by PHM Latin America and the Caribbean

A call for a society that rises above capitalism, founding a new, truly human civilisation based on solidarity and harmony with the environment; for sovereignty in health, by building together the conditions that enable a dignified life for human communities and their environment; health to be in the hands of people, thus reclaiming and appreciating the enormous wealth of knowledge, practices and experience that people of Latin America and the Caribbean have in protecting and caring for health; public, universal, equitable health systems with social justice that are multicultural and include promotion, prevention, treatment and supportive care, returning to the original meaning of these terms, which go beyond lifestyle and refer to the integrality of people and much more.
