“Everywhere but not specifically somewhere”
A qualitative study on why the right to health is not explicit in the post-2015 negotiations
BioMed Central “The MDGs expire at the end of 2015 and global negotiations are underway to finalise the post-2015 SDGs (...).

Despite this, the right to health was absent in three key post-2015 intergovernmental Sustainable Development Goal proposals in 2014 (...).
This article examines why it appears the right to health, so far, is not gaining direct expression in post-2015 discussion." Study by Claire E. Brolan, Peter S. Hill and Gorik Ooms. (Photo: flickr / Ron Mader)
