Review:

The field of health and human rights is coming of age, and this volume is a powerful testament to its scope and growing impact. Replete with fresh insights and provocative ideas, this book holds valuable lessons for everyone who strives to advance health, to protect human rights, and to gain a deeper understanding of the many interdependencies between those two goals. -- Harvey V. Fineberg, M.D., Ph.D., President, Institute of Medicine
Health and human rights is one of the most dynamic fields in contemporary human rights. As the synergies intensify, professional boundaries blur and the possibilities for action multiply. For those interested in this field, Perspectives on Health and Human Rights is an indispensable volume. Encompassing the national and international, practical and conceptual, and a rich variety of perspectives, it is a brilliant successor to the pioneering Health and Human Rights: A Reader. -- Professor Paul Hunt, University of Essex, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to the Highest Attainable Standard of Health
I warmly welcome this book and strongly encourage others to read it because it defines so well the field of health and human rights. It brings together theory and practice and demonstrates how all human rights, especially economic, social and cultural rights, are necessary for health and well-being. The selection of authors and the quality of the analysis will be invaluable to all who, by thought and action, can contribute to making human rights a reality for all people. -- Virginia Dandan, Chair, UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
This book is exemplary of the growing appreciation of the linkages between health and human rights as complementary approaches to the advancement of human well-being. It is a major contribution to the recognition of the centrality of human rights to global health challenges and the increased attention being given to the accountability of States under international law for issues related to health. -- Mary Robinson, former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Executive Director, Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative
A handy compendium of some of the recent literature [and] a valuable teaching aid for anyone seeking to bring health and human rights into the curriculum of a school of public health, law, medicine, or nursing. -- New England Journal of Medicine
