We take action in solidarity with people around the world building a movement for the right to health, calling on legislators and leaders worldwide to advance health care as a human right. Our advocacy team takes targeted political action to pressure the world’s leaders to ensure health equity and access for all.
We meet with local and national government leaders to share lessons, stories, and results from PIH’s work around the world. We advocate for legislation that eliminates barriers to care and increases investment in global health. And in doing so, we elevate the radical notion that people living in poverty deserve preferential access to high-quality health care.
