Ten years ago, the Center for Health, Human Rights and Development (CEHURD) began with a vision of a health system that reflected social justice and human rights. Through a combination of strategic litigation, campaigns, community empowerment and knowledge building, CEHURD has brought that vision closer to reality.  With the 10th anniversary of the organisation’s founding, there is an opportunity to reflect on CEHURD’s myriad accomplishments and to consider the ideas, the effort and — most importantly — the people who made them possible.

CEHURD began with an idea of ensuring the health rights of everyone, but especially Uganda’s vulnerable communities. Ten years later, it has emerged as a leader in the field, with a reputation for using bold strategies to realize and expand the right to health and those who have access to it.

“It started at a time when issues of health and human rights in the country, especially adopting a rights-based approach to health, were nascent,” said Professor Ben Twinomugisha, the Chairperson of CEHURD’s Board of Directors. “Very few lawyers were engaged in questions of health.”
