Organization

Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ)

CHSJ was founded in 2006 by a group of social activists, public health specialists, researchers, development professionals and others to address the fact that healthcare and other essential services were increasingly becoming out of reach for the poor. CHSJ seeks to strengthen the claims of marginalized citizens seeking to access the many health related rights that are promised by Indian law or guaranteed by international human rights treaties and yet weren’t being realized in practice. CHSJ pursues this goal through advocacy, policy research, networking, and building the capacity of individuals to advocate for their rights.
