This is a practical tool for organisations that want to bring a human rights approach into practice. It contains practical guidance for a six-step rights based analysis of a policy. It has been developed together with a number of NGOs and women's organisations from the South and the North. The instrument focuses particularly on the health rights of women. In the future the same method may also be used for other issues. Health Rights of Women Assessment Instrument (HeRWAI) has been tested by organisations in Kenya, the Netherlands, Pakistan and Bangladesh and was improved on the basis of the experiences of the test. It is user friendly, with practical suggestions and easy references to relevant information. HOM offer support to organisations using HeRWAI
