In the UK and across the world, neoliberal polices have had disastrous impact on health. In many places, the influence of neoliberalism on policy has gone unquestioned.
But there are a number of inspiring examples of countries and approaches that are improving health by rejecting neoliberal ideas.
The current UK debate about neoliberalism and its alternatives needs to be informed by the experiences of others. In particular we need to learn from those that are doing things differently!
Join us on Monday 16th April for a panel debate including:
- Steinar Westin, Professor of Public Health at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology
- Erika Arteaga Cruz, Health Activist with the People's Health Movement Ecuador and the Latin American Association of Social Medicine
- Jonathan Ashworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health
The event will launch The Alternatives, a new report from Health Poverty Action which explores the themes of the debate.
It will also be the UK launch for Global Health Watch 5. Copies will be available to purchase for a special discounted price.
