Abstract:

"Human rights are essential to global health. Given this interdisciplinary importance, the field of "Health and Human Rights" has proven increasingly consequential in local, national, and global contexts. Academics teach the subject in schools of law, medicine, public health, nursing, social work, international relations, and global studies. Nongovernmental organizations apply human rights in health programming and advocate for human rights in public policy. Policymakers are called upon to find ways to conform health policies, programs, and practices to evolving human rights standards. These human rights norms and principles have become central to health; yet, rising threats in an increasingly divided world have challenged many of these advances. It is necessary to empower a new generation of practitioners to sustain the global commitment to universal rights in public health. Looking to the next generation to face the struggles ahead, this foundational text provides a detailed understanding of the complex relationship between global health and human rights. In preparing the next generation to address future challenges to global health, human rights knowledge will be crucial to influencing health policy, research, and advocacy. Although the rhetoric of "human rights" has long been central to public health engagement, professionals must be able to operationalize the legal obligations of human rights as a basis for public health. It is necessary to accelerate health and human rights education. Academic study of the field can provide a foundation for greater inclusion of human rights in health professional studies and greater inclusion of global health in legal studies- informing a new generation of interdisciplinary professionals in healthrelated human rights, engaging practitioners to revitalize human rights at the center of health practice, and securing a future of global health with justice"--
