Presentation

The Alliance for Health intends to influence the transformation of social and public health policies in Mozambique through cooperation and constructive collaboration. Like the two previous pillars, this pillar requires all Alliance for Health members to be involved and really participate because it is the combination of individual efforts that will make the actions we aim to take visible and relevant.

In this context, the pillar of Advocacy - Action for Health - will primarily be based on the evidence generated by the research conducted (Research) and the training in knowledge generation (Training - EAS), with the aim of carrying out concrete advocacy and awareness-raising actions to influence public policies that impact health and influence social and behaviour change to defend the Right to Health through a focus on the SDoH.

The advocacy component includes a series of activities aimed at improving political dialogue and knowledge of evidence demonstrating the need to back policies that promote PHC, approaches based on the SDoH, equity in health, or other relevant issues impacting and enabling progress towards fully exercising the Right to Health in Mozambique.

In the awareness component, public awareness will be raised on the Right to Health (campaigns using audiovisual as well as information, education and communication materials) and on each of the social, economic, political, cultural, environmental, gender and other determinants which influence it. In this way, the design and implementation of actions and campaigns will always assess the leadership, recognition, social relevance, experience and intrinsic knowledge in each area where member organisations (allies) work: health, education, gender, environment or others.
