Description

Pursuant to Commission resolution 2004/27, the present report outlines some of the
activities that the Special Rapporteur on the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable
standard of physical and mental health has undertaken since his second interim report to the
General Assembly (A/59/422).

The Special Rapporteur devotes his present report to a group that is among
the most neglected, marginalized and vulnerable: persons with mental disabilities.

The human right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and
mental health is complex and extensive. In the exercise of his mandate, the Special Rapporteur
is developing a common way of approaching the right with a view to making it easier to
understand.
