Register for the National Health Assembly (September 22-23, 2018)

JSA is planning its Third National Health Assembly (NHA) in Raipur, on September 22-23. The NHA is also part of the mobilisation towards the 4th People’s Health Assembly in Dhaka on 15-19 November. The Assembly aims to address the urgent need to defend public systems and prevent the rampant privatisation of public services, including in healthcare. We expect about a 1500 activists from across India to be in Raipur for two days. We are looking at the NHA to build the capacity of activists and plan a challenge to current policies.

The themes for the assembly are:

  1. Defending Public Sector Health Systems         
  2. Commercialisation of Healthcare
  3. Gender and Health
4.  Access to Medicines and Diagnostics

5.  Social Determinants of Health

This sets the context for the National Health Assembly, which will also be an opportunity to review the work that Jan Swasthya Abhiyan has done in mobilising action towards health for all.
