[afro-nets] RIF: Constitutional Provisions on the Right to Health (Africa)

Am trying to collate information on the Constitutional provisions on the right 
to health in 16 Countries in Eastern and Southern African including: Uganda, 
Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Namibia, Zambia, South Africa, Mozambique 
Mauritius, Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, DRC and Madagascar.

The interest is look at how these constitutions provide for aspects such as: 
conduct injurious to health; access to the minimum essential food which is 
nutritionally adequate and safe, freedom from hunger to everyone; access to 
basic shelter, housing and sanitation, and an adequate supply of safe and 
potable water; access to services (e.g. medical services, emergency care, 
reproductive health) and access to health facilities, goods and services on a 
non-discriminatory basis, and of regulated quality, especially for vulnerable 
or marginalised groups.

Interest also focuses on: social financing of health; a balance between the 
rights and duties of health professionals and community or state; production 
and / or access to health resources, such as essential drugs; equitable 
distribution of all health facilities, goods and services; a national public 
health strategy and plan of action and any other right to health provisions.

I will be glad to receive copies of these constitutions and any materials 
related to these areas.
