About the Authors
  • Written by a respected authority on human rights and public health, this book delivers an in-depth review of the challenges of neoliberal models and policies for realizing the right to health. The author expertly explores the integration of social determinants into the right to health along with the methodologies and findings of social medicine and epidemiology. The author goes on to challenge the way that health care is currently provided and makes the case that achieving universal health coverage will require fundamental health systems reforms.

    • Interprets the right to health as an emergent right needing to cope with a very different environment than the one in which it was initially framed
    • Places the interpretation and implementation of the right to health in a contemporary context rather than offering a static legal or philosophical approach
    • Offers the human rights and ethical requirements of universal health coverage
