People's Health and Politics

People's Health and Politics " The interrelated crises of our times—the ways that globalisation, corporate rule, and top-down, ‘development’ policies undermine democratic process and endanger world health—are discussed in other background papers for the People’s Health Assembly.

The purposes of this paper are: 1. to examine the strategies used by the world’s ruling class to keep the majority of humanity disempowered and complacent in the face of the crushing inequalities and hazards it engenders;
2. to explore the methods and resources whereby enough people can become sufficiently aware
and empowered to collectively transform our current unfair social order into one that is more equitable, compassionate, health-promoting, and sustainable."
