Abstract

Active and informed participation is an integral component of health systems, as well as the right to the highest attainable standard of health. Despite its critical importance, health and human rights have not given participation the attention it deserves. While some health researchers have made more headway than those working in human rights, neither community has a widely accepted understanding of what the process of participation means in practice. The monograph is an accessible, practical, timely and original introduction to the process of participation; the need for a variety of participatory mechanisms; the relationship between fairness and transparency of the process; the relationship between participation and accountability and participation in accountability.
