Human rights and health: interdependent and essential

Women march in action for health. Millions of women, children and adolescents are denied their fundamental human rights, leading to preventable deaths, injuries, physical and mental illness and other harms, a UN report found. Photo credit: John Ferguson/Oxfam.
The right to health was recognized in 1948 with the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It has since been affirmed in international treaties and political commitments adopted by States. Photo: Michael Fleshman, NY.
