Those show the interest of many people and characterizes the collective process that tries to project the concerns and proposals of a wide range of organizations that work around the different fields of the social security and especially around right to health subjects, not forgetting the human rights, the work protection, social assistance and economical security. It shows the importance of this debate in the world current context.
