Right to Health Wiki

The Right to Health Wiki was developed by IFHHRO to inform health workers about the right to health. Therefore, this Wiki presents the most essential information in short and to-the-point pages with links to more detailed information. All with the intention to stimulate not only health workers but also others to use it, to contribute to it, and to bring a rights-based approach to health into practice.

The Wiki is divided in four main parts:

  1. Health as a human right – all the basics you should know

  2. Health and human rights by theme – addressing different health themes

  3. Health and human rights by country – information about the health situation by country

  4. Health and human rights education – resources and training materials
