Public Health Advocacy

Program Overview

Our work on public health advocacy is focused on ensuring and enabling effective policies to promote healthy lifestyles and resist attempts by corporations, through their products or practices, to jeopardize public health. We also work to promote delivery of adequate, qualitative, efficient, effective, affordable and accessible public health services and in preventing and combating public health emergencies.

We are particularly concerned about the deleterious effects and impact of corporate practices and abuses on public health of citizens and public health care delivery. We focus on countering the proliferation of the production and distribution of harmful consumer products that are known to undermine public health such as tobacco and trans fat in oil, among others.

Additionally, we also work with citizens to ensure that governments take appropriate, inclusive and equitable steps to combat the threat of occurrence and spread of epidemics and pandemics that pose significant threat to human lives and public health.
