Speaking Out on the Health Impact of Politics

Who we are:

The Politics of Health Group (PoHG) consists of people who believe that power exercised through politics and its impact on public policy is of fundamental importance for health. PoHG is a UK based group but with a clear international perspective and members throughout the world.

Our core principles:

PoHG believes that:

  • The opportunity for good health is the fundamental human right
  • It is the responsibility of governments to strive for equitable social, economic and environmental conditions in which the health of all can thrive

The Politics of Health Group Charter was published in 2004.This set out in full sixteen principles that should guide political action and policy development for health. In 2016 these principles were incorporated into the UK Charter for Health.
