30 years after Alma Ata: The future of Community Health
Basel, 11th November 2008
The Declaration of Alma Ata was signed 30 years ago. It reaffirmed health as a basic human right. Health for all is only achievable if people throughout the world can get involved in its social, economic and political development. Community health projects are an important approach to doing so. Where does international health cooperation stand 30 years after Alma Ata? What is the future of community health? Who are the players who can help to achieve the right to health for everyone? Medicus Mundi Switzerland is hosting the seventh Swiss Health Cooperation Symposium in Basel on 11th November 2008.
