Right to Health: a right that goes far beyond access to medical services and medicines

medicusmundi film explains what the right to health is and how it depends on safeguarding other fundamental rights.

Talking about the right to health alone is not enough, as it is not possible to be healthy when you do not have the necessary conditions to avoid becoming ill.

After all, what is the right to health and what must exist in order for it to be safeguarded? In this film we remember that health is a condition deeply dependent on the circumstances in which we live. As such, it is not enough to ensure access to medical services and medicines. It is also necessary to enforce fundamental rights such as the right to food, housing, work and other rights that are decisive to allow a quality of life that provides physical, mental and social well-being.
