Direktion für Entwicklung und Zusammenarbeit DEZA
Die DEZA erachtet die gegenwärtig herrschenden Ungleichheiten im Bereich der Gesundheit als inakzeptable Verletzung des grundlegenden Menschenrechts auf Gesundheit. Oberstes Ziel ihrer Zusammenarbeit im Gesundheitsbereich ist deshalb die Verbesserung der Gesundheit der armen und verletzlichsten Bevölkerungsgruppen. Die DEZA unterstützt die Tätigkeit des Netzwerks Medicus Mundi Schweiz durch finanzielle Beiträge und enge inhaltliche Zusammenarbeit.
Health Action International HAI
HAI works to increase access and improve the rational use of essential medicines. HAI is working towards a world where all people, especially the poor and disadvantaged are able to exercise their human right to health, which requires equitable access to affordable quality health care and essential medicines. HAI and its global partners recognize that poverty and social injustice are the greatest barriers to health and sustainable development. Partners are working for just societies where people can participate equitably in all decision making that affects their health and well being, including the allocation of resources. HAI’s strength is to enable consumers, health care providers, public interest NGOs and policy makers to collaborate based on mutual interests and common positions to advocate for policy changes and improved health for all. Partners work together to respond rapidly to priority issues by sharing information and expertise. Collaboration creates a broad base of support and ensures that the concerns of diverse communities are communicated at local, regional and international levels.

People's Health Movement PHM
"In the beginning, there were thousands of people across the world working very hard in big and little ways to promote the dream of a world where a healthy life is a reality for all. In the optimistic, joyous, compassionate 1970’s it seemed that this would be possible. And was not the Alma Ata Declaration signed by 134 governments in 1978? Did not the declaration promise Health For All by 2000? When the millennium edged closer and equitable health policy was still nowhere the optimists did not give up. They knew that the Third World had been plunged into debt and health care was in danger of complete privatization. To remind the world of the commitment made in more hopeful times the optimists came together in solidarity."
