ABOUT US

Our Aim
Socially relevant and rigorous academic health research and health action at CEHAT is for the well being of the disadvantaged masses, for strengthening people's health movements and for realising right to health and health care. CEHAT acts as an interface between progressive people's movements and academia.

Our Strategies
    -Undertake socially relevant research and advocacy projects on various socio-political aspects of health.
    -Establish direct services and programmes to demonstrate how health services can be made accessible, equitably and ethically.
    -Disseminate information through databases and relevant publications .







 RESEARCH AREAS

CEHAT's projects are based on its ideological commitment and priorities, and are focused on four broad themes

    * Health services and financing
    * Health legislation and patient's rights
    * Women's health
    * Investigation and treatment of psycho-social trauma

(1) Health services and financing
The focus of this programme is on determinants of health, people%u2019s health problems and health seeking behaviour, the structure and functioning of health care services, health expenditure and financing. It provides us with the basic critique of the existing situations, and concrete alternatives for micro and macro changes needed.

(2) Health legislation and patient's rights
This programme is based on our deep conviction that no system without social control and regulation would work for people,and respect right to health and health care. The strategies to bring people and patients at the centre of health care, through policies and legislations need to be evolved in the specific situation of each country and society.

(3) Women's health
Health and health care have strong sociocultural dimensions. Gender is one of the most important among them. This programme not only undertakes research on women%u2019s health, but it also informs all other programmes with the gender dimension.

(4) Investigation and treatment of psycho-socio trauma

This programme concentrates directly on issues related to human rights and violence, and of course also interrelates with programmes with human rights dimensions.
