Transformative policies and practice

With its track record of promoting knowledge sharing, mutual learning and critical self-reflection among actors in international health cooperation and global health, the Medicus Mundi International Network is is well positioned and dedicated to continue and extend this role in the next years, with a set of communities of practice hosted by the Network, convened by Network members ready to take the lead and open for a broad range of interested institutions and experts/practitioners.

“Beyond aid” – the Kampala Initiative

Since 2016, Medicus Mundi International provides spaces and input for a critical reflection on the role of health cooperation (aid) in people centred national health systems and policies. With the Kampala workshop on “How to advance cooperation and solidarity within and beyond aid?” (15-16 November 2019), we successfully broadened the debate beyond the Network members, giving more space to civil society voices and perspectives from the Global South, and moving from analysis to joint action.
