Joint Action and Learning Initiative on National and Global Responsibilities for Health

Joint Action and Learning Initiative on National and Global Responsibilities for Health (JALI) is the beginning of a global coalition of civil society organisations and academia collaborating to challenge inequality in access to health care around the world and to develop strategies to promote and fulfill the human right to health. JALI’s ultimate goal is to develop and see implemented a Framework Convention on Global Health that will serve to guide all countries on their global responsibilities – both individually and collectively – to ensuring access to health care.

Discussions around the initiative began in late 2009.

If you would like to join or contribute to JALI, please contact us at: JALI@section27.org.za
