Pillars for progress on the right to health
Harnessing the potential of human rights through a Framework Convention on Global Health
Health and Human Rights "Ever more constitutions incorporate the right to health, courts continue to expand their right to health jurisprudence, and communities and civil society increasingly turn to the right to health in their advocacy. Yet the right remains far from being realized. Even with steady progress on numerous fronts of global health, vast inequities at the global and national levels persist, and are responsible for millions of deaths annually. We propose a four-part approach to accelerating progress towards fulfilling the right to health," write Eric A. Friedman and Lawrence O. Gostin.
