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.
