Engagement scans | Identifying human rights barriers

An engagement scan is a rapid scan of laws and policies relating to health and affected populations, including key populations in a country, and relevant law and policymaking opportunities and processes.

An engagement scan aims to:

  • provide a brief overview of a country’s legal environment, including, where possible, recommendations for law and policy review
  • identify the key institutions that are relevant to law and policy reform
  • detail the processes through which law and policy reform occurs
  • outline the ways in which civil society organizations can engage in these events and processes
