Comments on the Charter: 

We are in full support of the aspirations of the Charter. Access to the highest standards of health is an obligation for all states. However, this obligation seems to dwindle more often than ever as governments fail to prioritize health in key government plans, budgets and strategies. Building strong social movements that can influence decision making is a crucial part of advocacy to realize health rights.

Suggestions for the PHM: 
Continue with building and supporting social movements with a course. Hakijamii works with social movements in Kenya, building their capacities and knowledge base to meaningfully advocate for their rights. We will work closely with PHM to achieve its. goal.
I endorse the People's Charter for Health:
