The right to health has been widely recognized by States and international organizations as basic human rights without which sustainable human development can not be achieved. States are responsible for the progressive realization of the rights to health. The development and service pattern of the health system have negative correlation with human rights and contributed to the underdevelopment of Bangladesh. While Bangladesh has made progress in some of the indicators of health, the realization of right to health has not gained momentum and needs to be recognized as a priority area. The government should take comprehensive approach in prioritizing the rights to health of its citizens and progressive realization of these rights.
