A Community Forum

How do we achieve health for all when communities are faced with widening social and economic injustice, declining air quality, the destruction of natural environments through resource extraction and urban expansion, and intensifying wars of aggression? How are communities impacted by a mounting environmental crisis?

Join the Alliance for People's Health to mark World Health Day and learn how poor and marginalized communities around the world are fighting from the front-lines against the neoliberal policies at the root of environmental injustice. Find out how to get involved through community action for social and environmental change.
