The right to health : a resource manual for NGOs

This resource manual has been prepared for health-concerned NGOs, including medical and other
health professional associations. Its main aims and objectives are to:
• raise their awareness of human rights perspectives on health, including the right to health;
• emphasize the important role they can play by promoting and protecting the right to health at local, national and international levels;
• demonstrate the benefits they can derive from invoking the right to health in the course of their work;
• show how they can hold governments accountable for their obligations arising from the right to health; and
• provide them with a resource guide that will help them to promote fulfilment of the right to health and to prevent its violation.
