Register for the PHM-USA National Assembly!
After a series of meetings in which working groups planned actions for the coming months PHM-USA will hold a national assembly to share out these plans and come together as a movement to chart the way with longtime friends and folks interested to become a part of this movement for health for all. Join us!
PHM-USA will have a national organizing and strategy meeting in July! Due to the pandemic and limitations on gatherings, it will be a virtual meeting. We will keep this page updated as details of the meeting are finalized. Check back often!
PHM-USA concluded two organizing and strategizing meetings on July 18 and 25. Six working groups developed action plans for the coming year:
- Health systems reform & access to equitable and respectful healthcare
- Anti-Racist Organizing
- Safe and Healthy Work
- Environmental Justice
- Trade and Health
- Immigration and Migrant Rights
- Reversing US imperialism in global health
See the the descriptions and action plans from each working group here.

We asked that everyone share their areas of interest around which we might structure PHM-USA’s work. After tallying up the responses, these are the areas of action that came back:
- Health systems reform & access to health services
- anti-racist organizing in health professions
- privatization of health services
- Environmental justice
- Climate change
- Extractive industries
- Work and the right to health
- Trade and health
- Reproductive justice
- Immigrant rights
- Police violence
- Indigenous sovereignty
- LGBT rights
- The role of the US administration in weakening the internationalization of health related global decision making
Now, we are looking for folks to lead some of the working group sessions during the national meeting. If you would be able to help guide discussions and organize these groups’ action plans for the coming year, please let Julia know.
