Training Manual on Human Rights for Health Workers

This online training manual shares materials developed to train health workers in health and human rights issues. It intends to bridge the gap between the legal conceptualisation of the right to health and the daily practice of health workers by providing human rights education materials specifically designed for health workers. The manual consists of seven basic parts:

1. Planning a training: suggestions for training programmes;

2. Opening sessions: suggestions for the introduction of the participants and the programme;

3. Introducing health and human rights: essential basic information;

4. Health workers and human rights: different roles of health workers;

5. Health issues and human rights: different health issues in relation to human rights;

6. Human rights mechanisms: instruments to protect human rights;

7. Further sessions: relevant sessions that do not fit in one of the above categories.

This manual is also available in Spanish, French, and Russian.
