Annual Report 2017 of the Community Working Group on Health, Zimbabwe

"The CWGH will continue strive to be the leader in organizing and championing communities' right to health and equitable health services in the country. The right to health is also enshrined in the country's Constitution. Section 76 of the Constitution clearly states that: “Every citizen and permanent resident of Zimbabwe has the right to have access to basic healthcare services, including reproductive healthcare services.” As a network deeply-rooted in the communities, CWGH continued to assist communities to identify their priority health problems, plan how to raise their own resources, mobilize contributions, and tap available resources for community health activities. This bottom-up approach has encouraged community participation which is a key component in primary health care approach." (quoted from the report)
