Right to Health and Health Care Campaign - priority health issues identified by PHM circles
Priority health issues as identified by PHM circles implementing the Right to Health and Health Care Campaign (taken verbatim from their reports, October 2010)
PHM’s Right to Health Commission evaluating the Right to Health and Health Care Campaigns
(RTHC) has identified themes that are common among the many campaigns that are under way
in 17 PHM circles around the globe.
As reported by the circles currently conducting a Campaign (through a written survey and follow
up Skype interviews), the issues of human rights relevance mentioned by them have been
grouped and classified in order to show where Campaign priorities lie as seen from their
perspective. The idea is to channel efforts and provide united global action points to the PHM
Right to Health and Health Care Campaigns worldwide.
Attached is a list of these themes with a brief description of each, as well as examples of how
these were highlighted by in PHM circles currently conducting a RTHC. The RTH Commission
has taken these into consideration and will propose five global themes for the Campaign for
future global action based on findings of the same.
