New NESRI Podcast with Alan Peura on the Human Right to Health Care


This August, NESRI’s Human Right to Health Director, Anja Rudiger, visited our partner organization, the Montana Human Rights Network, which is based in Helena, Montana. Together, the Network and NESRI held a series of focus group discussions on community health needs in Lewis and Clark County. On her visit to Montana Anja interviewed Alan Peura, the Helena City Commissioner who was instrumental in drafting the county’s right to health care resolution. The county adopted the resolution last December, declaring health care a human right and setting up a task force to identify ways for making access to health care universal.
