SECTION27 is a public-interest law centre that seeks to achieve substantive equality and social justice in South Africa. Launched in May 2010, it uses law, advocacy, legal literacy, research and community mobilisation to achieve access to healthcare services and basic education. SECTION27 aims to achieve structural change and accountability to ensure the dignity and equality of everyone. It draws its name from SECTION27 of the South African constitution, which locates the right to health within a context of mutually supporting and intersecting rights.  It states that everyone has the right to access of health care services, food and water, social security and emergency medical treatment. 

SECTION27 incorporates the AIDS Law Project (ALP), one of South Africa's most successful post-apartheid human rights organisations (see A2). SECTION27 collaborates with a constellation of organisations that includes the Treatment Action Campaign(TAC) (seeB2), Equal Education (EE), Community Trust Media (CMT) and Students for Law and Social Justice (SLSJ).
