April 21, 2015

The fourth edition of Global Health Watch, the alternative World Health Report published by the People’s Health Movement, is now available for free download.


Through its five sections, this book covers diverse issues related to health systems and the range of social, economic, political and environmental determinants of health. GHW4 locates decisions and choices that impact on health in the structure of global power relations and economic governance and is complemented by the ‘Watching’ section that scrutinises global processes and institutions. The final section on ‘Alternatives, Action and Change’, documents inspiring stories of struggles and actions for change. With special attention being paid to Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the role of WHO and a special focus on Latin America, this edition addresses key issues in the health sector.
