Dear Friends at People’s Health Movement
I am happy that People’s Health Movement follows closely the election. I shall be happy to respond in the given time. I do hope that your movement will take close look at the public health competence and previous activities of the candidates. That gives often more useful background than answers to questions.
Best wishes
Dr. Pascoal Manuel Mocumbi (Mozambique)
Senior Representative

Dear Hani Serag,
I know very well the PHM I share the values defended by the People's Health Movement. As you have witnessed at the Lima ForoSalud.
Please find attached my vision on WHO.
Warm regards,
