M-POHL in times of crises

Peace being a fundamental prerequisite for health was acknowledged in the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion in 1986. M-POHL builds on this affirmation and considers its collective efforts on health literacy as work for promoting equity, justice, and peace. M-POHL is aware that during times of crises, health must remain a priority and the right to health and access to services must always be protected. M-POHL as a WHO Action Network, supports the mandate and commitment of the WHO to ensure the best possible health and well-being of all people in all situations, including humanitarian crises and conflicts. The work of M-POHL is founded on mutual understanding and respect, constructiveness, and a strong commitment to humanity and peace.
