Welcome to the BIHR Health Hub! 

This hub brings together BIHR's work to put human rights at the heart of health and care. We have been working for over 15 years to support organisations to use human rights to improve health and care services. We have worked across the sectors, with NHS Trusts, local authorities, regulators, advocacy and support groups and other voluntary sector organisations. Our work shows that human rights can be a useful, practical tool for those working in health and care to improve services and outcomes for people.

Whether you work in service design or delivery, as an advocate or support worker, regulator, if you use services yourself or care for someone who does, there's something on the hub for you. The information collated here aims to empower you to know about human rights and use them in your daily work/life to ensure services are treating people with dignity and respect

You can find out WHY we are focusing on human rights in health and care, WHO we have worked with, HOW we have approached this work and WHAT we have achieved so far. Just scroll over the tabs at the top of the site to navigate between pages, or click the BIHR tick icon to go back to the main home page.
