Speaking Out

Health Poverty Action campaigners protesting to end tax dodging

Poverty and poor health are not accidents. They are the result of political, social and economic decisions.

Health Poverty Action works alongside some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities around the world as they struggle for their health rights.

Beyond this work on the ground, we are part of a global movement seeking to tackle the root causes of poor health and poverty by speaking out and calling for change.

We speak out to challenge the structures and systems that keep people poor, and to hold those responsible to account.

We live in a world in which wealth and power are concentrated in the hands of a privileged few. The wealthy can use their influence to shape policies and practices that suit them, meanwhile others struggle.

Health Poverty Action campaigns to break this vicious cycle through actions that address the root causes of poverty and tackle inequality.
