Interim Strategic Plan Addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and enriching our diversity, equity, and inclusion activities.

Protecting and Promoting Public Health
Issues related to public health and human rights should never be partisan. We believe that health professions’ organizations are obliged to take action to protect and promote public health. To that end, we must occasionally make a public statement and take, not a political stance, but a humanitarian one when it comes to relevant social issues that affect public health and human rights.
