Support needed to defend public health and the Escuela Andaluza de Salud Publica

29 January, 2020

Dear HIFA, CHIFA Members, Institutions that support HIFA and HIFA CR,

We ask for your support against the parliamentary initiative proposing the dissolution of the Andalusian School of Public Health (Escuela Andaluza de Salud Publica, EASP).

EASP is the HIFA Spanish Coordinator since 2018 when this long-lasting needed Forum was finally launched (november 2028). We are in deeply concern that all the important support provided by HIFA Spanish in the Iberoamerican region might be lost with this parliamentary initiative.

Please consider expressing your solidarity with public health in general and with the EASP, and we invite you to being part of the following initiatives:

More information is circulated on twitter #NOalCIERREdelaEASP and on facebook

Let's help spread this request in the different networks in our countries. From Honduras we are actively expressing ourselves! Yes to the EASP! Yes to public health!
