Realising the Right to Health in Our Lifetimes?
Towards a Framework Convention on the Right to Health
Section27 "When it comes to the right to health the threads need to be pulled together. Something more concrete and more directive is needed. This is the context in which we believe that a FCRH (Framework Convention on the Right to Health) could assist to simplify explanations of the ambit and duties created by the right to health and prioritise health at a global level. A FCRH would entrench the notion that on issues of fundamental human rights which cut across national boundaries, states have primary responsibility."
