2017 Commonwealth Civil Society Policy Forum

                                20 May 2017

A very successful and informative civil society policy forum was held in the wings of the Commonwealth Health Ministers' meeting and the World Health Assembly on Saturday 20 May.

The three themes for the civil society policy forum were:

* Funding models to finance universal health coverage,

* The politics of wellbeing, and

* The effects of structural violence against women.

Policy briefs were developed addressing each of the themes with input from civil society across the Commonwealth. The policy briefs and the presentations can be accesed below. Also below is the agenda for the forum, the presentation from civil society to the Commonwealth Health Ministers' meeting, and some photographs of the forum (with thanks to the Commonwealth Foundation).
