Health & Human Rights

Human rights are essential to global health. The inextricable linkages between global health and human rights have given rise to the interdisciplinary field of “health and human rights.” Through this field, human rights offer universal frameworks to advance justice in global health under international law, elaborating the freedoms and entitlements necessary to realize dignity for all.
