Make Health -
Not War! Campaign
World Summit on Sustainable Development
Johannesburg, August 2002
At the World
Summit in August 2002, Dr Rath presented a program ‘Health for All by the Year 2020™’ that will continue to have far reaching
effects on the health of many hundreds of thousands of people in both
the developing and industrialized countries for many generations to come.
What Effect Did This Have?
- After the World Summit, we have been inundated with messages
of support for the Health For All program from people all over the
whose collective voice now has a means to be heard.
- Dr Rath’s presentation in Johannesburg triggered the
long overdue adoption of natural health measures into the public health
of several countries in Africa,
the Middle East and the Far East.
- As a result of Dr Rath’s Health For All program, enlightened
governments around the world began to throw off the burden of the pharmaceutical ‘business
with disease’ that the health of their people had been yoked
to for years.
- The inalienable truth that natural health measures are a safe,
effective and affordable means of dealing with the common diseases
that are endemic in the world today can no longer be ignored.

- Government ministries and health institutions can no longer afford
to brazenly ignore the superior benefits of natural health measures
when formulating public health policies.
The people whose health is affected by these policies are now informed
of the benefits of natural health measures as a result of the Open
- Policymakers can no longer hide behind ignorance when formulating
public health policy and cannot continue to be bound to the outdated,
expensive and dangerous patented drugs peddled by the pharmaceutical
- Even health
institutions in America, the stronghold of the
pharma-cartel, have had to bow to the inevitable and join the people
in calling for
the introduction of natural health measures into public health policy.
- ¨The people are now demanding that natural health measures are
incorporated into public health policies in every country and the
Dr Rath Health Foundation will continue to fight for that right to

Global Healthcare System.
