IFHHRO Regional Training, Managua 2008

The IFHHRO Latin America Regional Training on Monitoring the Right to Health took place in Managua, Nicaragua, from 9 to 13 December 2008. It was co-organised by Ipas and IFHHRO's Regional Focal Point based in Lima, Peru. Titled “Respect, Promotion, and Guarantee of the Right to Health: Monitoring its Progress”, the objective of the training was to encourage the participants to develop a new vision of the right to health and its inclusion as an integral part of the human rights framework, as well as its incorporation into training curricula for health providers.

A total of 33 participants attended the training; 80% of them were health professionals (either doctors or nurses), both practicing doctors and medical professors, while 20% were health professionals that also worked as advocates for the right to health. The participants represented many countries, including Brazil, Mexico, El Salvador, Panama, Chile, Bolivia, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.
