Problems and prospects of safeguarding health values and right to health in a reform prone Nigerian society
AbstractValues are essential part of social life. They shape worldview and character of social relationships. But they are threatened or affected by reforms, industrialization, acculturation and globalization etc. This paper observes that problems of safeguarding health values and right to health in Nigeria stems from failure to weave values into policy and reform instruments as well as poor implementation of polices. There are also other institutional and behavioural lapses, which if addressed as recommended, will protect health values and right to health and reposition Nigeria among committee of nations with impressive health indicators. Keywords: Health values, Right to health, Reform, Policy.
