Nomadic groups have often being discriminated against in many different fields. Often states do not meet their obligation to respect, protect and fulfil nomads' human rights. This article applies a human rights perspective to nomads' difficulties in accessing health care services. The article highlights how to use international human rights instruments and standards, and even regional and national case law, in order to remind states of their obligations towards nomads. The final section is a case study focussing on the nomadic population of Turkana, Kenya.
