After the event, Purna said: ‚ÄúI am delighted that Mary Creagh MP made important policy announcments on international development, especially on health, here in Brighton. Promoting the best health care, that serves the poor and the marginalised, is a priority abroad as much as is it at home. A commitment to human rights continues to provide the backdrop for our work, whether on disability, LGBT rights, violence against women or health.‚ÄĚ
