Wesseling et al. Respond.

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter


We thank Haynes et al. for expressing their concerns on behalf of the People's Health Movement (PHM) about our recent editorial on the Mesoamerican nephropathy (MeN). We wish to clarify for the readers that PHM is a growing international network of nongovernmental organizations, civil society, and academic organizations who work together toward "Equity, ecologically sustainable development and peace . . . a world in which a healthy life for all is a reality."(1) We share PHM's vision. In fact, SALTRA, the organizing entity of the workshop questioned in the Letter to the Editor, was recently approached by PHM to join its Fair and Healthy Work campaign circle. (Am J Public Health.
