9780415503990: Health and Human Rights in a Changing World

Health and Human Rights in a Changing World is a comprehensive and contemporary collection of readings and original material examining health and human rights from a global perspective. Editors Grodin, Tarantola, Annas, and Gruskin are well-known for their previous two volumes (published by Routledge) on this increasingly important subject to the global community. The editors have contextualized each of the five sections with foundational essays; each reading concludes with discussion topics, questions, and suggested readings. This book also includes Points of View sections―originally written perspectives by important authors in the field.

Section I is a Health and Human Rights Overview that lays out the essential knowledge base and provides the foundation for the following sections.

Section II brings in notions of concepts, methods, and governance framing the application of health and human rights, in particular the Human Rights-based Approaches to Health. Section III sheds light on issues of heightened vulnerability and special protection, stressing that the health and human rights record of any nation, any community, is determined by what is being done and not done about those who are most in need.

Section IV focuses on addressing system failures where health and human rights issues have been documented, recognized, even at times proclaimed as priorities, and yet insufficiently attended to as a result of State denial, unwillingness, or incapacity.

Section V examines the relevance of the health and human rights paradigm to a changing world, underscoring contemporary global challenges and responses.

Finally, a Concluding Note brings together the key themes of this set of articles and attempts to project a vision of the future.

Review:

This is the most complete compendium on health and human rights - a much neglected and under-researched, but essential dimension of global health. It addresses both theoretical enquiries and very practical issues for a wide range of health practitioners.

-Peter Piot, MD, PhD, Director and Professor of Global Health, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

This book is a timely and practical collection of the best thinking on the ethical and human rights issues that impact health policy decision making and implementation. It is required reading for anyone teaching or practicing public health.

-Georges C. Benjamin, MD, Executive Director, American Public Health Association

Health and Human Rights is a monumental contribution. It speaks with insight and most comprehensively to the intersection between public health and human rights. This anthology, which covers a wide span of issues ranging from ethnic cleansing to HIV/AIDS, easily lends itself as an essential and timely learning and teaching resource for courses in the growing field of health and human rights.

-Charles Ngwena, Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, South Africa

Health and Human Rights in a Changing World offers a masterly presentation of an extraordinary array of pertinent public health and human rights issues presented by key world experts on the topic that never before have been brought together in such a succinct and convincing manner. It is an absolute must for health experts, human rights lawyers and activists.

-Eibe Riedel, Law and Bioethics, Universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim

Effective health policy and health advocacy at global and national levels - in health care and bioethics as well as public health practice - rests on a sound understanding of health rights and human rights. Health and Human Rights in a Changing World provides an impressive and definitive review of the field for students, teachers, scholars, health advocates and policy-makers. An authoritative resource for courses at all levels.

-Roger Magnusson, Health, Law & Governance, University of Sydney, Law School
