Photo, Occupation of the Health Secretary building by the Movimento de Saúde da Zona Leste (MSZL)

Description

Abstract:
This photo depicts the occupation of the Health Secretary building of the state of São Paulo in 1983 by members of the Movimento de Saúde da Zona Leste (MSZL), a coalition of grassroots movements from the city's eastern urban periphery. Taken by a member of the negotiating committee sent by the MSZL to the state health minister, the photo marked a triumphant moment for the movement as it successfully forced the state to recognize its popular health councils as co-managers of public healthcare facilities. Collection: Movimento de Saúde da Zona Leste (MSZL)
