Charter

The International Federation of Health and Human Rights Organisations (IFHHRO) promotes the realization and protection of health-related human rights, including the right to the highest attainable standard of health (the "right to health"). IFHHRO focuses on the important role of health professionals in this regard.

We provide an international platform for organizations and associations of health professionals and others engaged in realizing the right to health. Being part of an international network, health and human rights organizations from all over the world can share their experiences, provide support to each other and connect with international and regional bodies.

All our members need to subscribe to the principles laid down in the IFHHRO Charter.
