Abstract

Presents a three-part provisional framework for exploring potential collaboration in health and human rights. The first relationship involves the impact (positive and negative) of health policies, programs and practices on human rights: the goal is to negotiate an optimal balance between public health goals and human rights norms. The second relationship posits that violations of rights have important health effects, thus far generally unrecognized, that must be described and assessed. The third and most fundamental relationship proposes that promotion and protection of health are inextricably linked to promotion and protection of human rights and dignity. -from Authors
