This guide, written for and by health and human rights students and professionals, aims to present the foundations of public health and human rights with a specific focus on health. Cases from developed and developing countries are used to show how different fields — health, ethics, law and the right to health, broadly defined — interact or can interact with one another to improve health outcomes. It also presents right to health tools and how to apply them. “The first of its kind, this book bridges health and human rights in theory and practice, bringing together leading experts to explore and demonstrate how the right to health can be and has been operationalised in practice…” Anand Grover, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health.
