30 years later, public health still essential
Here’s a great new post from one of my favorite blogs. It talks about the 30th anniversary of the Declaration of Alma Ata, “in which a landmark call was made, during the International Conference on Primary Care, to all governments and all people involved in the work of public health ‘to protect and promote the health of all people.'” This declaration has become a “guiding force” to many people and organizations involved in global health efforts.
This post offers really helpful insights and examples into the connections between public health and human rights. It also looks at a recent UNICEF report on children’s health in Asia, as well as the new report from the Commission on Social Determinants of Health. Check it out.
