The right to health is a fundamental right that requires full respect and protection for every individual. It is even more important that children are adequately guaranteed this right. This research is an insight into the lives of children. It looks at the right to health of a Zambian child and whether or not this right is protected by the existing legislation. It gives an insight into the way the child's right to health is protected in Zambia and how it should be protected in the international sphere. The aim is to bring out the adequacies and inadequacies of the law and to come up with a good and lasting solution to the adequate protection of the right to health for children in Zambia. Currently there are prevailing circumstances that have led to children not adequately enjoying their right to health. The laws have gaps that need fixing; the manner in which the right is provided for in the current legislation is not as it should be. The research has been conducted using books, writings of scholars and also the opinions of specialists in the field of child rights. This dissertation concludes by determining that the right to health is an essential element for the development of the nation. It gives the manner in which the right to health for children should better be protected.
