The Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH) Alliance: Turning the Right to Health into the Lived Reality for Everyone
December 10, 2017
Today, Human Rights Day, witnessed the birth of a new organization committed to using the law to turn the right to health into the lived reality for all people, everywhere: The Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH) Alliance.
The FCGH Alliance formalizes and creates new potential for an existing network of organizations and individuals already advocating for the FCGH and holds the promise of engaging many more in the pursuit of the FCGH.
The FCGH Alliance, a Geneva-based nongovernmental organization (NGO) that will operate as a global network, aims to secure the FCGH, a proposed global treaty based on human rights and aimed at national and global health equality that would respond to some of the most pressing problems of national and global health governance by increasing accountability, equity, participation, financing, and health in all policies at community, national, and global levels.
