Chapter Summary

Internationally recognised and legally binding human rights instruments impose many obligations affecting the right to health on governments that have ratified them. This chapter is an introduction to Part 3 of this book. This part focuses on the key standards for monitoring the right to health: the universal standards of immediate, including minimum core, obligations; the equitable distribution of resources; and the importance of nondiscrimination with special regard to the position of poor, vulnerable, or otherwise disadvantaged groups in the community, whose health is at greatest risk. Monitoring is essential for making the right to health a reality in the everyday lives of individuals and communities. Part 3 also describes certain tools and activities that NGOs can employ to promote the right to health and to monitor its implementation.
