EQUINET AFRICA

EQUINET, the Regional Network on Equity in Health in Southern Africa, is a network of professionals, civil society members, policy makers, state officials and others within the region who have come together as an equity catalyst, to promote and realise shared values of equity and social justice in health.

EQUINET gathers people to overcome isolation, give voice and promote networking using bottom-up approaches built on shared values. We have come together in a spirit of self determination and collective self reliance working through existing government, civil society, research and other mechanisms and institutions i n the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region and in southern and East Africa.

EQUINET is building a forum for dialogue, learning, sharing of information and experience and critical analysis. We do this to build knowledge and perspectiv es, shape effective strategies, strengthen our voice nationally, regionally and globally and our strategic alliances to influence policy, politics and practice towards health equity and social justice.

EQUINET's work covers a wide range of areas identified as priorities for health equity, within the political economy of health, health services and inputs to health, covered in the theme areas shown on this site. EQUINET is governed by a steering committee with representatives from fourteen institutions in southern Afr ica and is co-ordinated at the Training and Research Support Centre Zimbabwe.

PEACE, HEALTH AND JUSTICE IN THE NEW YEAR

The EQUINET steering committee wishes all a peaceful and healthy new year. Thank you for the shared learning and work in 2014. We hope to continue to work with you in 2015 to aspire, contemplate, investigate, analyse, act and transform to make progress in health equity and justice.
