Chapter Summary

The range of organizations whose activities involve promoting and protecting the health and well-being of individuals and communities is very wide. Accordingly, this Resource Manual has been designed to provide information to a broad group of organizations around the world working with health and health-related issues at local, national and international levels. In a human rights framework, health is placed in the context of social justice and linked with principles of equity and non-discrimination. Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) should choose strategies based on their own areas of expertise and that promote goals that they have set for themselves. The Resource Manual has been designed in a flexible manner to serve as a hands-on manual, an educational tool and a reference guide. The Resource Manual is organized so as to allow readers to find and to use the information that they require for their own work.

Keywords: health-related issues; human rights framework; non-governmental organization (NGO)
