IFHHRO has established a unique global network of committed health workers and provides a platform for discussion, exchange of expertise, support and inspiration.

Expertise and activism in the field of health and human rights is scattered all over the world. IFHHRO’s strategy is to strengthen human rights in the health sector by providing an international platform for discussion, for exchange of expertise and inspiration, and for linking with international institutions. We believe that health and human rights organisations in one country can be inspired by successful projects from organisations in another country. Individual health professionals can be protected and inspired by an international network of colleagues active in taking up human rights issues in health care. An international network can also be used to share expertise on rights-based health budgeting with health policy makers and National Medical Associations.
