As a college student interested in international relations and global health, I see this book as a great introduction to many of the actors, norms, and institutions that play a role in the global health field. This book covers topics ranging from the history of international bodies such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization and the role that human rights have in their operations, to exploring current threats to global health in the form of communicable and non-communicable diseases, environmental threats, and harmful government policies. Above all though, the book explains how human rights can be used as a framework to ensure global health and to combat major global issues we face. From child morbidity, to water accessibility, to COVID-19, human rights-based responses are necessary in order to address these issues in an effective sustainable, and humane way.
Some of my favorite topics were the intersection between public health and human rights in the field of environmental policy, as well as public health and human rights in international trade. Not only does this book provide you with relevant history, current policy frameworks, and future policy recommendations, it also inspires you to work to ensure a world where global health and universal human rights are a reality.
