Ghana bishops: ‘right to health’ should be included in new bill of rights
July 15, 2013
The bishops’ conference of Ghana has launched a campaign to include the “right to health” – more specifically, the right of individual access to health care – in the bill of rights of the nation’s new constitution. This right encompasses “the nutrition, hygiene, and environmental sanitation and many other health issues that affect everybody right from the rural areas to the big cities nationwide,” said Samuel Zan Akologo, executive secretary of the Department of human Development of the National Catholic Secretariat.
