Letter on the European Commission (EC) consultation on Global Health

14/12/2009 – Amnesty International welcomes the public consultation on the EC’s Communication on the EU role in Global Health. The consultation could be used to ensure that the European Union’s (EU) internal and external actions related to Global Health are fully consistent with the EU’s commitment to place human rights at the core of sustainable development. To this end, Amnesty International underlines that the concept of global health should be explicitly addressed as a human rights issue.
