After the pandemic, we should have understood that everyone's health is interconnected: this is the vision that inspired the Civic Charter on Global Health on which Cittadinanzattiva worked throughout 2022, to promote awareness among citizens and institutions and identify concrete actions to protect - as a fundamental human right - the global health.
Founded on three pillars (health, environment and social justice), the Charter proclaims 13 rights that, taken together, aim to guarantee every person in the interest of the individual and the community "global health”, understood as state of bio-psycho-social well-being interconnected with biological, economic, and social, political, cultural and environmental, and commercial determinants.
The First Civic Charter of Global Health – that also identified circa 60 concrete actions to implement to make concrete and enforceable the 13 rights - has been promoted by Cittadinanzattiva with the involvement of numerous civic actors and experts from different areas, and presented last 19 November in Italy in occasion of the Festival "Fa’ la cosa giusta - Do the right thing", realized in Bastia Umbra from 18 to 20 of November.
