Global Health Watch is a collaboration of leading popular movements and nongovernmental organizations comprising civil society activists, community groups, health workers and academics. It has compiled the second edition of its alternative world health report – a hard-hitting, evidence-based analysis of the political economy of health and health care – as a challenge to major global bodies that influence health. Its monitoring of institutions including the World Bank, the World Health Organization and UNICEF reveals that while some important initiatives are being taken, much more needs to be done to have any hope of meeting the UN’s health related Millennium Development Goals.


The Global Health Watch 2 is now available for free download on the People’s Health Movement Website! Hard copies are also available for purchase from the Hesperian Foundation.
