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.

CONNECTING COMMONWEALTH DOCTORS
The Commonwealth of Nations is currently made up 54 countries across all six continents of the world.
The Commonwealth Medical Association is made up of the national medical associations from at least 41 commonwealth countries.
There are indeed diverse levels of development, cultures, health services, disease patterns and a rich of knowledge and experiences.
Commonwealth doctors share a common language and medical education but many are widely separated from each other geographically and they work in different environments and are exposed to different diseases. One of the main themes of the new strategic plan of the Commonwealth is ëConnecting Peopleí and in the past the Commonwealth Medical Association (CMA) has brought doctors together under the auspices of the National Medical Associations.
