This two page summary statement on PHM's position on the Right to Health has been developed by several PHM persons-- all of whom participated in the 2 year process to develop phase 2 of the Right to Health Campaign.  This was shared in sub-plenaries and workshops devoted to the Right to Health during PHA3 in Cape Town from 6-11 July, 2012.
