PHM is a global network bringing together grassroots health activists, civil society organizations and academic institutions from around the world, particularly from low and middle income countries. The Network has presence in around 70 countries and works on various programs and activities. PHM is committed to comprehensive primary health care and addresses the social, environmental and economic determinants of health.
PHM’s Global Health Governance (GHG) initiative aims to improve the global environment for health by changing the information flows and power relations which frame global health decision-making and implementation. The project was launched as an initiative of the PHM, the South Center, the Third World Network and other international organizations and networks. The focus is currently ‘watching’ and providing critical support to the World Health Organization (WHO).
A number of important PHM publications, positions and statements, newsletters and news and analysis are available for download in the resources webpage.
