The Sustainable Health Equity Movement was officially launched on 02 July 2020, when a webinar put the spotlight on the unacceptable global health inequities that have been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, hosted at the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s zoom platform, was attended by 1271 registered participants from over 100 countries, and featured WHO Directore General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, IAP President Volker ter Meulen, and other world-leading researchers, activists, and experts from all over the world.
“Moving forward, we all have a responsibility to continue working on health equity and sustainability at all levels. We call on all of you to engage in concrete actions during the pandemic and beyond. We invite you to share with us your stories to post on our website www.sustainablehealthequity.org : scroll down and find the tab on : “Share your story”.
We will reach out to you soon for your help to create interactive forums and to develop a participatory governance for our movement, to make sure there is input from as many voices as possible.”
