Alliance for Health Research Agenda

It is important to join efforts between all organizations, entities, social movements, civil society, universities and research institutes that consider that health is a right, not a consumer good, and that the best way to guarantee this same right is through promotion of public policies that address the social determinants of health. 

In this sense, the Alliance for Health Research Agenda was elaborated, in a participatory way, by more than fifteen civil society organizations, institutions, universities and other entities. It is a broad agenda, with a transforming vocation, which will allow generating evidence and, subsequently, designing policies and actions to influence citizenship and institutions.

We now call on you to enrich this agenda and enrich it with research that can meet the proposed lines. The agenda is a public proposal and so will be the dissemination of all research that supports it. Only then, through the socialization of knowledge and free access to information, can we improve the health of all the inhabitants of Mozambique.
