Chapter Summary

This chapter provides basic information on how the UN reporting and monitoring process functions, including practical, step-by-step guidance on how NGOs can contribute to it. It deals mainly with the work of three treaty monitoring committees, particularly concerned with the right to health, namely: the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR), the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The reporting process is an essential part of the process of monitoring implementation by governments of the right to health. In order to contribute effectively to the work of the Special Rapporteur, it is important that NGOs are familiar with the Special Rapporteur's mandate.
