This scenario highlights the health inequities in Uganda’s healthcare system. It brings out the contention and tension between claim holders (claimants of rights) and duty bearers (guarantors of rights) in a resource-constrained reality.
It is intended to help learners appreciate how a potential tension may appear or be conceptualized by both sides. It is also intended to invite leaders to re-imagine how they might diffuse such human rights tensions while protecting the right to health for all.
By the end of this scenario participants/learners will be able to:
• Appreciate the disparities in the enjoyment of the Right to Health between the different sections of the population in their jurisdiction.
• Articulate practical ways how they would work to guarantee the right to health for everyone especially the most disadvantaged in their communities.
• Examine the opportunities within the country’s legal framework to guarantee the right to health.
• Identify appropriate actions to reclaim the right to health for all persons regardless of their social economic status
