In her second report to the General Assembly, the Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, Tlaleng Mofokeng, focuses on the impact of racism on human dignity, life, non-discrimination, equality, the right to control one’s health and body, and the entitlement to a system of health protection.
