Civil Society Strategy Meeting on a Global Campaign for a Currency Transaction Levy for Health |

Publisher: ICSS

This report is based on a meeting held 5 December 2009 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The gathering, a “Strategy Meeting on a Global Campaign for a Currency Transaction Levy for Health”, was organised and hosted by a locally based non-governmental organization (NGO), International Civil Society Support (ICSS), and build on an initial meeting held in Washington DC in the summer of 2009.

As the meeting’s title implies, it aimed to broaden and deepen civil society engagement in a campaign for the implementation of a currency transaction levy (CTL), a particularly promising innovative financing mechanism that could raise billions of dollars for global health needs.
