Evidence shows that legal empowerment plays a vital role in advancing the right to health.
Programs that improve communities’ access to justice are critical in deterring abuses linked to accessing health services.
Join us as we discuss key lessons and challenges faced by legal empowerment organisations in Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Mozambique as they work with and support communities to realise their right to health.
Particular attention will be devoted to efforts that are deeply participatory, community-based, community-led, and empower grassroots actors first and foremost.
Organisations that will lead this discussion are :
- Justice and Empowerment Initiatives - Nigeria
- Network Movement for Democracy and Human Rights- Sierra Leone
- Namati- Mozambique
- Methodist Church- Sierra Leone
