The People’s Health Movement is a network of organisations and activists in over 90 countries working in different ways to challenge the social, economic and political forces that undermine people’s health, in particular, the health of poor people, most of whom live in developing countries. The IPHU was created to support the work of PHM and the hundreds of national and local health organisations which make it up.
The IPHU faculty, which includes PHM, HAI, and Somali Health Board members, have diverse backgrounds and global expertise. Each facilitator will bring expertise from research, international and local activism and practice in public health to give participants unique perspectives and approaches for addressing health rights.
