A Global NHS? Public Services Across Borders
Global Justice Now & Health Poverty Action

Add to calendar

Each year governments are diverting vast amounts of resources away from citizens towards big companies. From cuts to the NHS to the denial of healthcare in parts of sub-Saharan Africa, the struggle for decent, accessible public services is global. From public partnerships to global social protection funds there are many ideas for how to realise rights including health, education social protection. Join us to debate how a Labour government can redefine priorities and support access to public services for people across the world.
