Chapter Summary

Monitoring involves systematically collecting information about an existing situation and evaluating it against the standards that have been set for the right to health. Effective monitoring requires accurate and systematic fact-finding and analysis of information. The purpose of monitoring is to identify and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses in a government's compliance with its obligations. Different Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) will inevitably have differing objectives in mind for monitoring, but monitoring must always be regarded as a means to an end. The process is important because it enables health professional associations and other NGOs to identify inadequacies in the realization of the right to health in order to work towards improving them. The chapter presents key questions for monitoring the right to health. NGOs need to assess legislation, government policies and their implementation in order to answer the questions.

Keywords: health professional associations; Non-Governmental Organization (NGO); right to health
