    Conversemos de salud, desde la perspectiva de la Agenda 2030

    La salud es una condición de bienestar físico, mental y social. Va más allá de la ausencia de enfermedades. Este es el concepto de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), una visión integral que la presenta como un aspecto que cruza tres dimensiones, es decir, atraviesa nuestras distintas actividades cotidianas: la vida.

  • El derecho a la comunicación en relación al proceso de memoria, verdad y justicia

    El derecho a la comunicación en relación al proceso de memoria, verdad y justicia

    La lucha de los organismos de derechos humanos por el esclarecimiento histórico de los crímenes cometidos en el marco del Plan Cóndor durante las décadas de 1970 y 1980 hace de la Argentina un país reconocido internacionalmente. La Asamblea Permanente por los Derechos Humanos (APDH) es uno de los organismos históricos que comenzó su trabajo recopilando denuncias por desaparición forzada de personas y acompañando a víctimas de violaciones a los derechos humanos. Desde entonces ha tenido un rol fundamental por la memoria, la verdad y la justicia.
