About the Book

The People’s Health Assembly in Cuenca was a tremendous experience for health activists and workers, and for all who fight for social justice and development.  It built on the first PHA in Bangladesh, and marked another milestone for the social movements fighting for the health rights of the world’s people.

This book, written and conceptualized by María Hamlin Zúniga and Arturo Quizhpe Peralta, captures the spirit and the wonderful activities of those days in Cuenca.
