About the Global Health Watch
WHO Watch is a resource for advocacy and moblisation and an intervention in global health governance. The GLOBAL HEALTH WATCH aim to strengthen various streams in the Health for All movement (IP and access, trade and health, health systems, PHC, quality use of medicines, etc.) by ensuring that activists whose concerns arise arise from their grass roots involvements can learn about the global dimensions of the problems they are facing and reshape their advocacy and mobilising accordingly.
