PHM UK aims to help realise the following vision of a fairer and more ecologically sustainable world:
“Equity, ecologically-sustainable development and peace are at the heart of our vision of a better world – a world in which a healthy life for all is a reality; a world that respects, appreciates and celebrates all life and diversity; a world that enables the flowering of people’s talents and abilities to enrich each other; a world in which people’s voices guide the decisions that shape our lives. There are more than enough resources to achieve this vision.” Peoples Charter for Health, 2000.
We believe this vision is in harmony with the vision of other actors within the wider social justice movement. We hope to become a movement of community groups, academics, service providers, NGOs, trade unions, politicians, lawyers, artists, activists, younger people, older people (and more!) working towards the progressive realisation of a fair and “healthy” society.
