The International Declaration of Health Rights

Created by the students, faculty and alumni on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.

We, as people concerned about health improvement in the world, do hereby commit ourselves to advocacy and action to promote the health rights of all human beings. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being. It is not a privilege reserved for those with power, money or social standing.
