to the online Training Manual on Human Rights for Health Workers developed by the International Federation of Health and Human Rights Organisations (IFHHRO).


Have you ever asked health workers what the relationship is between their work and human rights?


You will most probably be met with puzzlement and miscomprehension.


Few health workers have an explicit understanding of what human rights can mean in relation to their work


This online manual aims to bring a change in this situation by providing detailed training session plans that can be used to raise awareness among health workers about health and human rights.


A more detailed explanation on the structure and background of this online manual can be found on the introduction page. Have a look at the detailed session plans provided as downloads through the menu on the left. Try them out, feel free to ask for advice, adapt them, and share your experience with us!
