A timely and compelling work, Global Health Watch 5 provides critical analysis of the state of health and healthcare worldwide. Each of the book’s essays is an incisive and well-researched look at the challenges and opportunities in the fight to achieve healthcare as a human right—as well as the political, economic, and social conditions that foster broadly shared health and wellbeing. Authored collaboratively by a diverse group of on-the-ground experts including healthcare workers, public health practitioners, patients, and activists, the book serves as a comprehensive alternative to WHO’s more conventional and pro-establishment World Health Reports. While deeply critical, it is also solutions-oriented and imbued with hope and solidarity. A great read for all who dream of a brighter healthcare future!
