Health Poverty Action is an international NGO that was established in 1984 by a group of health professionals. Since our very beginnings, we have taken a justice-oriented approach, developing strong community roots, creating comprehensive and integrated health systems, and addressing the social determinants of health.
We work in partnership with people around the world who are pursuing change in their own communities. Together we demand health justice, and challenge the power imbalances that currently deny them their rights. We believe health is not just the absence of disease, but a combination of physical, mental and social well-being.
We draw strength from the knowledge that we are not alone, but part of a global movement for health justice – the People’s Health Movement (PHM). The PHM is today’s embodiment of the primary health care movement that achieved groundbreaking success at the UN Alma-Ata Conference in 1978. Such was the power of this moment, that 40 years later the radical vision it set out continues to rally health workers and policymakers worldwide.
WHAT WE DO
Health for all is a right not a privilege – a right denied to many by a global system stacked against them. It doesn’t have to be this way. Health Poverty Action acts in solidarity with health workers, activists and communities worldwide to improve health and challenge the causes of poverty. When we stand together, we are all powerful.
We do this in three distinct ways:
We approach health as an issue of social justice
We recognise that the greatest causes of poor health worldwide are political, social and economic injustices. This is a global scandal which causes unnecessary suffering on a massive scale. That is why we tackle the root causes of poor health as well as the symptoms, and why our name is Health Poverty Action.
We prioritise those missed out by others
Development organisations tend to cluster together which leaves large populations with almost no support at all. People may be living in hard to reach areas, or are difficult to support for some other reason. We make these most neglected populations our highest priority.
We address the full range of factors which impact on health
As well as strengthening health services we work on areas such as nutrition, water, sanitation, immunisation, and income generation. Tackling one cause of poor health in isolation can give the appearance of improving health, but in reality might do little more than change the cause of death. Tackling numerous factors together saves lives.
