Ariel Foundation International is in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations
2015 saw the AFI Changemakers host their first ever Access to Health Social Forum side-event. Chairpersons Megan Smith and Catherine White both addressed member state representatives and NGOs at the social forum with the Changemakers’ vision for the global health landscape. The three most pressing issues discussed by the youth delegates were mental health, sustainability in healthcare and corruption within the healthcare system. All three topic areas produced full-length standalone reports to compliment the main summit report, which can be found on our official publications page.
