Roundtable with Civil Society and Media Representatives on One Voice for Health

My Health-My Right

Center organized two roundtable meetings with representatives from civil society and media on November 29th and December 01st, 2016 in Islamabad. A total of 28 participants were present for both the meetings. Syed Talat Hussain facilitated the roundtables titled “My Health – My Right,” which were part of a larger ‘One Voice for Health’ agenda aimed at collating voices from the communities around challenges in the health care delivery systems. Center, in this respect, has conducted a series of district-based consultations and perception surveys for generating a set of citizens’ demands. Based on the broad themes that emerged from the consultative process, a Charter of My Health-My RightDemand for Better Health and Nutrition is developed which was shared with public health experts, civil society, health activists and media professionals to elicit their feedback on the content and suggestions on way forward. Based on their feedback and suggestions the Charter of Demands for Improved Health and Nutrition is being translated into a positioning paper and policy briefs for identifying and defining problems in targeted policy forums for creating space for broader and comprehensive health sector reforms. Further three sessions are planned in December with the Standing Committees on Health in KPK and Punjab and one with National Assembly in Islamabad.
