About the Author:

Stephen P. Marks is the François-Xavier Bagnoud Professor of Health and Human Rights at the Harvard School of Public Health

Review:

The volume very effectively and thoroughly pulls together a wide-ranging set of texts in one coherent, easily accessible source. Thus, this collection of primary legal materials on health and human rights should be a valuable resource for health professionals, scholars, and human rights advocates working in the fields of health and human rights.
--Debra DeLaet (Human Rights & Human Welfare 2007-01-01)
