The Human Rights Discourse in Health (19 key statements)
Food for a flagrantly violated thought
Meaning of the human rights discourse in health:
The revived interest in a HR-based approach to development and to our work in health is well justified and an advantage over our current approach. Human Rights (HR) - and the Right to Health - have a particular concern about those who are disadvantaged, marginal and living in poverty. Widespread unsatisfied health needs - primarily of the poor who lack economic access to health services (and are now faced with widespread fee-for-service charges) - represent flagrant violations of the rights of a majority of people.
