Q: What does "health and human rights" mean to you?

A: "Health rights" include all dimensions of health (mental, physical, emotional and sexual), and are inseparable from social, cultural and economic "human rights". The latter include the right to live in one's own home, the right to a full human education, the right to earn a dignified and just wage (protected by worker's rights), the right to participate in all political and social decisions that affect one's life, the right to participate in democratic elections, and the right to live free from any kind of persecution.
