The task of addressing poverty, health and human rights cannot be handled by any single global institution and requires rigorous interdisciplinary and coordinated action. This is why the WHO and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) have worked together with a range of stakeholders to develop this guide. It is intended as a tool for health policymakers to design, implement and monitor a poverty reduction strategy through a human rights-based approach. It contains practical guidance and suggestions as well as good practice examples from around the world.
