Health and its Issues in the Twenty-first Century

Published in November 2001

The current crisis of humankind manifests itself principally through the fact that a great part of its members suffer from, among other things, poverty, injustice, discrimination, inequality, lack of technologies and difficulties in accessing health services. Health is a fundamental factor of human development, and an health-centred analysis is thus essential, and can provide us with elements of principles that could help us face this crisis more globally. A group of health professionals offer condireations on some of these principles, such as:
- the definition of health, which could result in the elaboration of a framework that could allow us to implement actions and concrete proposals within this domain.
- the predominant health model or system, which has clearly shown its insufficiency and which needs to be reformed.
- The financial support which would help in reducing inequalities in the field of health.
