Program on Global Health & Human Rights professors Sofia Gruskin and Laura Ferguson contributed to the 2013 World Health Organization report “Women’s and Children’s Health: Evidence of Impact of Human Rights.” The document targets government and public health professionals engaged in policy development, monitoring, evaluation and research in women’s and children’s health. It also examines how applying human rights to women’s and children’s health policies, programs and other interventions helps governments comply with their binding national and international obligations and contributes to improving women’s and children’s health.
