Health and Human Rights Resource Guide

HHRRG_coverThe FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, by invitation from Open Society Foundations (OSF), has developed the 5th edition of the Health and Human Rights Resource Guide. The Resource Guide has been designed to be a user-friendly, multi-purpose tool in advocating for health and human rights with a wide array of users, including health workers, trainers, program designers, litigators, and policymakers. The Resource Guide covers basic concepts in health and human rights. The introduction provides a primer on the right to health and human rights, and the nine chapters each focus on a different health issue or marginalized or vulnerable population. The updated Resource Guide aims to serve as a useful tool for those working to defend and secure human rights.

The Resource Guide includes the following chapters:

  1. Introduction
  2. Patient Care and Human Rights
  3. HIV, AIDS, and Human Rights
  4. TB and Human Rights
  5. Harm Reduction and Human Rights
  6. Palliative Care and Human Rights
  7. Children’s Health and Human Rights
  8. Minority Health and Human Rights
  9. LGBTI, Health, and Human Rights
  10. Disability, Health, Community Living and Human Rights
