Health is a right not a privilege


Appropriate primary, preventive and curative care is available to the entire community, especially the poorest.


  • Make appropriate care accessible to all, especially the poorest (for example, by setting up mutual health plans)
  • Lower the mother and child mortality rate
  • Take preventive action by immunizing children and pregnant and nursing mothers and ensuring they are well nourished in a healthy environment
  • Promote reproductive health (family planning)
  • Afford better services to people living with HIV/AIDS
  • Provide nurses with training in human and professional skills
  • Engage competent medical and paramedical staff and ensure their capacities are strengthened
