The Learning Network for Health and Human Rights launched its Toolkit on the Right to Health on May 26th in South Africa.
The organisations collaborating in the Learning Network – six civil society groups and two universities in South Africa and the University of Maastricht Centre for Human Rights – explore how collective action and reflection can identify best practice with regard to using human rights to advance health. The Toolkit on the Right to Health was designed in response to the need for a practical tool to empower communities on what the right to health means, how to identify violations of health rights and how to respond to these violations. It can be used as a stand-alone source of information or as training tool for workshops on the right to health.
