Empfehlungen der Deutschen Plattform für Globale Gesundheit für die Globale Gesundheitsstrategie der Bundesregierung

Eds.: Deutsche Plattform für Globale Gesundheit , (2018)


www.plattformglobalegesundheit.deDie Deutsche Plattform für Globale Gesundheit (DPGG), ein Zusammenschluss von Gewerk-schaften, Nichtregierungsorganisationen und Wissenschaftler*innen, verfolgt das Ziel, die Bedeutung der gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen von Gesundheit und Krankheit stärker in die nationale und internationale Gesundheitsdebatte einzubringen. In der heutigen globa-lisierten Welt sind die wesentlichen Einflussfaktoren für Wohlbefinden und Gesundheit der Menschen nicht mehr allein auf nationaler Ebene steuer- und beeinflussbar. Es gilt aber auch: „Globale Gesundheit fängt zu Hause an“. Daher will die Plattform dazu beitragen, die Trennung zwischen nationaler und globaler Gesundheitspolitik zu überwinden.
