Editorial Reviews


"This volume will be vital to the continuing advancement of rights-based global governance to safeguard the health of the world's most vulnerable... Providing the first systematic account of the implementation of health-related human rights through global governance, this volume will serve as a model for future research, practice, and advocacy to advance global health and human rights." ―(From the Foreword) Mary Robinson, Former President of Ireland (1990-1997); United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"The World Health Organization was founded on the conviction that health is a fundamental human right. This volume highlights the importance of a rights-based approach in global health governance, and the contributing chapters provide a foundation to ensure that human rights occupy their rightful place at the center of global health policy."Tedros Adhanom GhebreyesusDirector-General of the World Health Organization 
"Human Rights in Global Health takes a comprehensive look at the evolution of human rights, particularly for the most marginalized, in the institutional architecture for global health. This volume is a tour de force that fills a significant gap in the field and will serve as an invaluable resource for policymakers, faculty, and students."Chelsea Clinton & Devi SridharCo-authors of Governing Global Health
"Human rights and global governance need each other. This groundbreaking volume systematically reviews their emerging relationship in the context of global health. It signals how far we have come, how much further we still have to travel, and how we can chart the way forward. If you work in global health, this important book is essential reading."Paul HuntFirst UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health --This text refers to the paperback edition.
