About JALI

The Joint Action and Learning Initiative on National and Global Responsibilities for Health (JALI) seeks to achieve a global health treaty -- a Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH) -- that would be based in the human right to health and designed to meet the needs of the world's least healthy people and close unconscionable health gaps between the global rich and poor. Achieving a Framework Convention on Global Health will need the support of health and justice social movements around the world, even as the FCGH could greatly advance their efforts to secure the human right to health.
