Action for Health

Action for Health is a section of the Hesperian Foundation's website.  I wrote before about two books on community health published by that foundation.

Some years ago the World Health Organisation published Health For All by the Year 2000.  That year came and went.  All kinds of changes in societies around the world would have been needed and of course many of them have still not happened. 

An ecological thinker once said that if you pick up one thing you find that it is linked to everything else.  Systems thinking is needed for promoting health. 

Health depends partly on services for treatment and prevention.  Health is also related to wider issues such as poverty, inequality, education, food, land and agriculture.

In fact health is a political issue and there is a Politics of Health Group.  On their website is their Charter
