HEALTH RIGHTS

The Health Rights Programme provides technical and monetary support to public and private lawyers, civil society organisations, and community-based organisations to use the law to achieve concrete policy and legal outcomes which advance and solidify health rights and the rights of those infected and affected by HIV in southern Africa. The Programme does this by intervening in or providing technical and monetary support to strategic litigation, capacity building of key groups, and facilitating networks.
