Alter Summit joints this Call!

In several European countries, but also elsewhere, we will denounce the commercialisation and privatisation of Health (and social protection) because they are a threat for people’s access to quality healthcare.

Today, due to the national and european policies implemented these last decades, always more firms, often transnational, share the benefits of what is called « Health market ». Meanwhile, many structures treating the population lack of financial ressources. Our governments continue to sell our Health when negociating free-trade agreements as TTIP or TiSA.

Let’s defend our Health and all healthcare services from the rapacity of transnational corporations !
