"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

AID Saathi, Prasanna Saligram traveled to the conference as Peoples Health Movement, India representative. Several AID chapters (Boston, Minnesota, Columbus, College Station, San Diego) approved funding to cover for Prasanna’s travel and other hardware/software cost for communications and website cost.

This website, which was created using AID funding, is available at http://phmovement.org/pha2/.

Coming from 82 countries around the world, 1492 people met at the Second People’s Health Assembly in Cuenca, Ecuador from 17th to 22nd July 2005, to analyze global health problems and to develop strategies to promote Health for all. Overwhelmingly they reaffirmed the continuing importance of the People’s Charter for Health (2000) and saw it as a rallying document for the ongoing struggles of the People’s Health Movement globally and within countries.

The right to health will be achieved through large-scale popular mobilization. It was decided that,
• PHM will initiate or support struggles related to the right to water, food security and food sovereignty, a healthy environment, dignified work, safe housing, universal education and gender equity, since people’s health depends on the fulfillment of these basic rights.
• PHM will launch a comprehensive campaign to achieve the “Global Right to Health and Health Care” at the local, national and international levels, to defend health and social security (including health care) systems, and to document and oppose health inequities and denial of the right to health.
