Health Poverty Action works for health and global justice in partnership with people who have been marginalised and pushed into poverty.
We work with communities to help them demand their right to health, and to challenge the power imbalances that deny them their health rights.
Health Poverty Action’s work has grown to include programmes in 14 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America (with more currently in development). We always prioritise the poorest and the most marginalised – those neglected by governments and almost everyone else. This has led us to work in some very difficult environments, often providing the only external assistance. Health Poverty Action currently employs about 500 staff worldwide (with the vast majority located in our programme countries).
