The Colombo declaration: A plan for collaborative action

Organisations representing health professionals and policy makers of Commonwealth countries who came together last year to support the Colombo Declaration at the Commonwealth Medical Association’s triennial conference have agreed to undertake a number of activities to work towards reducing inequalities and improving health and well-being for all citizens across the Commonwealth.

This is being called the ‘Colombo Declaration: A plan for collaborative action’. The plan is not legally or financially binding but provides an important an expression of collaborative commitment towards the common goals identified last year. It is hoped that this collaborative effort will help coordinate some of the excellent and extensive health activity across the member states of the Commonwealth and beyond.
