Chapter Summary

This chapter describes a wide variety of practical strategies that NGOs can successfully use to promote and protect the right to health. Implementation of the right to health at the national level is the key factor to the enjoyment of the right by people during their everyday lives. In view of this, it is important that NGOs work constructively with government agencies, policy makers, and public officials in the design, promotion, implementation and monitoring of policies and programmes (including associated budgets) that conform to the right to health. Health professional organizations and other NGOs concerned with the delivery of health services should decide how their own work in areas such as service delivery and managing health institutions can complement steps taken by government to promote the right to health.
