4th People’s Health Assembly (PHA4) – a gathering of 1400 grass roots health activists, civil society organizations and academic institutions from around 73 countries took place in Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh in November last year. Intal Globalize Solidarity and Viva Salud were actively present there.
