MOB has been in the forefront of organizations calling for the integration of civic education and human rights concepts into the entire society; not only at the local level but also at the wider Provincial Level.

 

MOB has developed a trans-cultural model of the “Right to Health” approach and commitment to social justice and change in the region by examining health in the context of people’s life –moving beyond the individualistic approach in order to include extended family, social, cultural, political, religious and economic conditions.  The model is based on analyzing the links between health and human rights focusing on the community approach and development. Such a model has been developed through capacity building, professional advancement, professional credentialing, and the ability to act as an ethical change agents in a constantly changing environment by empowering family and community initiatives in alliance with existing community resources.

MOB has gained distinction for our critical analysis of the contextual linkage between health and human rights, and contribute creatively to the local, regional and global right to health approach movement and prevention of torture.
