Despite the Alma Ata inspired slogan ‘health for all by 2000’ in the second decade of
the twenty first century, the world remains affected and infected with bad health.
This situation has generated much debate, and as a result, national and global
responses have arguably entered a new era building on the past success and
failures of health movements, most notably on the back of the global HIV/AIDS
movement. It is acknowledged that the rights instruments that exist relating to the
right to health have provided a healthy platform for advocacy and have lead to
successes on the ground, but the question is where to go from here.
