Abstract

Accountability is a central feature of human rights. Despite its critical role, little work has been done to explore its meaning and content. Even less work has been done in the context of the right to health. As a result, accountability is cloaked in misunderstandings. The monograph is an accessible, practical and timely study, addressing these misunderstandings by clarifying the process of accountability; the relationship between monitoring, mechanisms and redress; and the pre-conditions for effective accountability. The publication of the monograph was supported by OSI's Public Health Program and Law and Health Initiative.
