New Zimbabwe Constitution and the Right to Health Campaign 2010

In September 2008 the three main political parties in Zimbabwe signed a Global Political Agreement (GPA), undertaking to engage in the development of a new democratic constitution of over the next 24 months.

This project will feed into that process by promoting the inclusion of right to health in the new constitution. The Community Working Group on Health (CWCH) is a network of community-based organizations that aim to enhance community participation in health through a health literacy approach.

This grant will enable CWCH to actively participate in the right to health campaign with a view to having it enshrined in the constitution. CWCH will consolidate the results of a number of activities (analysis of existing policy, key informant interviews, focus groups, group meetings) into a position paper to be presented during the constitution making process with a view to ensuring the inclusion of the right to health in the Zimbabwe constitution.
