Cláudia Monge participates in a book celebrating the 40th anniversary of the NHS

Cláudia Monge authors a chapter in the book “Rescue of Dignity – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 40th Anniversary of the NHS” under the coordination of José Martins Nunes and which Minerva Coimbra has just published.

The lawyer writes about “Social concerns and assistance in sickness in the Portuguese Constitutions (1822 to 1976)”.

The coordinator of the publication, José Martins Nunes, was chairman of the board of directors of the Coimbra Hospital and University Centre (CHUC) and Secretary of State for Health. As highlighted in connection with the launch of the book, the work aims to mark the 40th anniversary of the National Health Service under the inspiration of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 40th anniversary of the adoption by Portugal of the European Convention on Human Rights, and to contribute to the understanding of the history of the right to health protection as a human right and as a fundamental right in Portugal.

In addition to Cláudia Monge, the work also includes texts by Agostinho Branquinho, Ana Paula Martins, André Dias Pereira, Fernando Araújo, Fernando Leal da Costa, João Carvalho das Neves, José Carlos Lopes Martins, José Martins Nunes, José Mendes Ribeiro, José Pedro Figueiredo, Luís de Almeida Sampaio, Óscar Gaspar and Paula Maia Fernandes.
