HealthRight International

Nonprofit or community organization

Description

HealthRight International* is a global health and human rights organization working to build lasting access to health for excluded communities.

We work closely with communities and establish local partnerships to deliver health services. At the same time, we provide training and equipment and improve systems to enable our partners to deliver services on their own. Our goal is to create lasting change that supports access to health while strengthening human rights.

Our projects address health and social crises made worse by human rights violations, with a particular focus and expertise on:

•HIV/AIDS, TB, and Malaria, including the rights of people living with these diseases to care, and protection from stigma and discrimination.

•Women's health, including women's right to safe and effective maternal reproductive health care, as well as equal access to information and quality health services.

•The health and welfare of orphans and other at-risk children and youth, whose wellbeing is endangered when they lack supportive families or are institutionalized.

•Care and support for survivors of human rights violations such as torture, trafficking, and domestic and gender-based violence.

Since its founding in 1990 by the late Dr. Jonathan Mann, HealthRight has worked in over 30 countries, with current projects in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the United States.

  • HealthRight International was known as Doctors of the World-USA from 1990 – 2009
