GHW 2 and move of secretariat to South Africa!
Plans for the Global Health Watch 2007-2008 (GHW2) are underway 
which include a move of the secretariat to the Global Equity 
Gauge Alliance (GEGA) office at the Health Systems Trust in 
South Africa in October. The secretariat will be led by Antio-
nette Ntuli and Bridget Lloyd of GEGA with the support of David 
Sanders from the University of the Western Cape. Thanks to 
Medact for hosting the GHW1 secretariat for the last two years.
The GHW2 will be coordinated by a coalition of GEGA, Medact and 
the People?s Health Movement (PHM) together with a new partner - 
the Health Research and Consultancy Centre (CEAS) based in 
Quito, Ecuador. We would like to encourage movements, activist 
organisations, NGOs and academic institutions who are active and 
interested in the broad themes of the GHW (globalisation, health 
care, social determinants of health, monitoring of global insti-
tutions that govern international health policy) to participate 
in the process of producing GHW2. We are planning a consultation 
process to invite comment on the themes suggested for GHW2. If 
you are interested in joining the collaboration - contact 

Latin American Health Watch 2!
A Latin American Health Watch 2007-2008 (LAHW2) is also planned 
and will be led by CEAS in Ecuador. CEAS is the key GHW contact 
for the Latin America region. 

Spin-offs from GHW 2005-2006!
There has been much interest and enthusiasm to follow on some of 
the key themes from the GHW1 report. Notable activities are:
* the production of a book based on the chapter Global influ-
ences on people?s health
* Medact is looking to develop a project on climate change and 
* COHRED has made a booklet out of the Health research chapter 
and presented it at the Forum for Health Research in Mumbai
* The GHW Secretariat are planning to produce popular versions 
of several of the key chapters of GHW1
* The GHW Secretariat is planning advocacy work around the WHO 
and health systems chapters of GHW1
* Country watches in a number of countries are planned ? more on 
this in the next newsletter.

purposes or for future projects we would really like to know ?
