Achieving Health Equity This Generation: The Case for Social Medicine

A Consensus Statement by the Social Medicine Consortium

We have participated in and been complicit with broken health systems whose principles and systems don’t lead to healthier communities.

We have heard the voices of patients throughout the world whose tragic stories of sickness plead for more just, equitable health systems and care.

We have witnessed politics that tolerate xenophobia, racism, sexism, and unregulated capitalism without any accountability.

We have observed economic and social systems that routinely fail to affirm the dignity of all humans and ignore the tremendous assets of all communities.

We have trained in educational systems that acknowledge very little or none of this.

We refuse to stand by and let this happen.

Social Medicine is our response. 


In honor of WHO World Health Day on April 7 2017, we invite you to read the full statement and to sign on, promoting these values on behalf of yourself or your home institution.
