Commendations for GHW 1

‘A very good reference for people working in areas affecting the health of populations. It deals with some of the most important issues in today's world. I highly recommend it.'
Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Health Services

‘Combines academic analysis with a call to mobilize the health professional community to press for improvements in global health and justice. I hope it will be read by many health professionals in rich and poor countries alike.'

Dean, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
‘It is very good to see the issues of trade and globalization reflected prominently in a report aimed at health professionals. Global Health Watch provides them with a resource to engage in debates about these non-clinical, structural determinants of poor health.'
Director, Third World Network

Governments and intergovernmental organizations have structured our social world so that half of humankind still lives in severe poverty. These global poor suffer vast health deficits. This greatest moral outrage of our time will continue until citizens reflect on its causes and firmly place the human rights of the global poor on the political agenda. Global Health Watch is a courageous and promising effort in this direction.
Professorial Research Fellow, Centre for Applied Philosophy, Australian National University

‘Global Health Watch offers a critique of global trends that threaten health including the practices of multinational corporations, the false promise of the genetics revolution, the scandal of hunger in a world of plenty and the failure of UN institutions such as WHO to live up to their original mission to promote the health of poor people. It also demonstrates, with practical suggestions, that another world is possible. It will become the essential guidebook for health activists who want to campaign for a kinder, more equitable, healthier and people- centred world.'
Commissioner on the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health.

‘A much needed resource, unique, and reflecting the work of well qualified authors from all continents. I applaud the effort - and the result.'
Professor of Social Medicine (Emeritus), University of California , San Francisco.
