Advancing the Right to Health through Universal Periodic Review
This book has been published in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the World Health Organization in the Human Rights Information Notes series. We took action, seeing it as a shortcoming that this book, which has been translated into many languages around the world, has not been translated into Turkish since its publication in 2008. This situation reminded us that as an association, our direction is correct and based on what needs we were established in this field.
In this source, the right to health,
• Basic concepts,
• How it covers the needs of certain target groups,
• To its actors and obligations,
• National and international monitoring,
• Including all of the international treaties it references
and it still maintains its currency, validity and importance in the sense that no more comprehensive publication has been made after 14 years.
We hope it will be useful for anyone interested in the “right to health”, especially grassroots organizations, human rights activists, researchers, politicians and members of the press.
