Doctors for Human Rights (DHR)
Doctors for Human Rights (DHR) was launched in 1989 as a voluntary organistion with a global remit. DHR exists to channel the humanity, influence and unique skills of the medical profession into securing worldwide observance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other internationally recognised Human Rights standards. Membership is open to the general public, corporations and health professionals alike. Experience shows that the medical world can both inform and learn from the human rights community.
DHR has an eclectic remit covering not only civil and political rights, but also economic, social and cultural rights. However, it is the development and implementation of the right to the highest attainable standard of health that DHR campaigning has been most influential.
