This book aims to bolster the burgeoning discourse of health and human rights. In so doing, it charts the history of the linkage between health and human rights.
It also pinpoints the sense of imperative that surrounds this relationship and, more importantly, identifies a series of threats or challenges to attempts to link health and human rights and proposes how these might be addressed.
Amongst other things, it asks: Is bioethics pushing human rights aside? Is conflict between risk and rights inevitable in infectious disease control? Is human dignity a threat to human rights? Is reproductive choice a bad argument in the context of reproductive technologies? Is it sensible for human rights to make use of indicators, benchmarks and impact assessments? Is trade a danger to human health and also to human rights?
This is a book which will be of great interest to students of human rights and health law, and to scholars and policy-makers in these areas.
