POLICY STATEMENT ON HUMAN RIGHTS, EQUITY, ANTI-RACISM AND ANTI-OPPRESSION.

Transform Health Coalition recognises that different forms of discrimination and oppression are intersecting and interlocking. They are harmful systemic and institutional forces. Global entities such as ours often replicate this harm and amplify it by re-establishing or reinforcing neo-colonial imbalances and North-South inequalities. Transform Health Coalition seeks to interrupt these systems within our coalition, and create a healthy, equity-minded and inclusive space.

 

Transform Health Coalition is committed to building a coalition:

  • Working together on the basis of equity, universality and solidarity;
  • Whose work in digital health and health data governance centres on the human right to health equity, particularly for people living in lower/middle income countries and in rural and remote communities;
  • Which centres both the leadership and the meaningful engagement and participation of people and partners traditionally under-represented and without a prominent voice in international organisations — including people and partners from lower/middle income countries; people and partners from black, indigenous and/or people of colour communities, as well as other conventionally under-represented populations, and other people marginalised in the digital health divide;
  • Which in its approach, structures, policies and individual and organisational practices seeks to break down neo-colonial, white supremacist and other systems stacked against the above-mentioned conventionally under-represented groups through a dynamic all-coalition equity and inclusion plan;
  • With a healthy and productive culture and environment free of violence, harassment, bullying and discrimination, including micro-aggressions, where all partners and individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal opportunities.
  • With a healthy and productive culture and environment free of violence, harassment, bullying and discrimination, including micro-aggressions, where all partners and individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal opportunities.

Transform Health is committed to doing our work differently, about ensuring that we operate in line with our core principles of equity, empowerment, rights, inclusion. When going against history and global systems, this takes concerted efforts.

We have therefore developed a coalition-wide measurable, implementable plan on equity and inclusion. We will be intentionally and incrementally trying to improve both our outcomes, and how we are trying to achieve those outcomes.
