Right to Health

About the program

The Right to Health Program promotes the right to the highest attainable standard of the physical and mental health as stipulated in domestic, regional and international human rights instruments. Projects under the right to health contribute to advancing the right to health in Uganda by catalyzing citizen participation in health rights advocacy and promoting accountability in the health sector. ISER ensures a deliberate and systematic strategy to get communities to participate in health rights advocacy, enable access to information, strengthening the capacity of grass root groups nationally to monitor and self advocate against health rights violations, continuous monitoring and documentation of violations for advocacy, including budget advocacy and legal empowerment for the realization of the right to health.
