Our Focus Areas
Just Like our Mission we seek to promote and protect the health rights of all individuals, regardless of race, gender, or socio-economic status. We believe that access to quality health care is a fundamental human right, and we are dedicated to advocating for policies and programs that improve health outcomes for all people.
Research and Documentation
Through research and documentation, we strive to bring attention to the critical health rights challenges facing communities and to inform our advocacy efforts.
Advocacy is at the core of our mission at Huric-Uganda, where we work to promote and protect health rights by speaking out on behalf of those in need and advocating for policies and programs that improve health outcomes for all people.
Public Interest Litigation
Public interest litigation is a tool we use at Huric-Uganda to advocate for health rights through the legal system, by filing lawsuits that advance the public good and protect the rights of vulnerable populations.
Health rights refer to the right of every person to access quality health care and to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, as recognized by international human rights law.
Mental health is a critical aspect of overall well-being, affecting how we think, feel, and act, and is an important aspect of health rights, deserving of equal attention and investment as physical health.
Community participation is a key principle at Huric-Uganda, as we believe that the most effective solutions to health rights challenges come from the communities affected by them, and we strive to involve them in all aspects of our advocacy efforts.
