2019 is the Year of Indigenous Languages!

The WFPHA’s Indigenous Working group presents their press release, celebrating the tribute to Indigenous language. Playing an important role in culture and cultural expression, language is precious to indigenous people. With culture playing a central role in their health and wellbeing, the Indigenous Working Group encourages the over 90 countries around the world, where the 3000 million Indigenous people have called home before colonization, to invest in Indigenous language maintenance and revival.

The WFPHA has released a joint paper in collaboration with the European Public Health Alliance: “The Global Charter for the Public’s Health: how can we use it to tackle AMR?” 
AMR is a multisectoral problem, which must be dealt with on a regional, national, and supranational level. To systematically tackle AMR, there is a need for a framework that takes these preconditions into account. The Global Charter for the Public’s Health is one promising useful framework developed by the WFPHA.
This report represents one of the outcomes of our last year workshop on this topic. The Global Charter’s implementation is maintaining it’s progress!
