The People's Health Movement (PHM) is a global network bringing together grassroots health activists, civil society organisations, and academic institutions from around the world. The network is committed to the provision of global health, as well as addressing social, environmental and economic determinants of health (as also stated on their website). Due to the growth in global health crises resulting from ever increasing inequities the People's Charter for Health (PCH) was created. Contributors included activists, scholars, and health workers. This has also served as the guiding document for the network.
