Anand Grover @ conference 2012

on .

After a period of restructuring, we are back in force, with our second international conference. This time it was organised in Berlin, together with the German NGO medico international, a cooperation that stared with our first conference in 2009.

While the idea of a global social protection fund for health was considered ‘ahead of its time’, back in 2009, at this conference many felt that ‘its time has come’. If we want to realise the right to health, there is no other way, as Anand Grover, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health explains.
