Last week, the Tufts GlobeMed chapter and other Boston community organizations gathered at the Boston Commons to rally for the right to health, as declared by Article 25 in the United Nation’s Declaration of Human Rights. The UN is currently meeting to discuss post-2015 Millenium Development Goals and other aspects of development that should be prioritized in the coming years. The aim of the Global Day of Action was to make health a top priority on the agenda, and it was incredible to see the efforts of communities around the world fighting to make this happen.
Here is a video of how the first Global Day of Action for the Right to Health came together all around the world: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=309650355887192&set=vb.152728261579403&type=2&theater
