Human Rights in Global Health

This chapter explores the future of multilateral funding to realize the right to health by exploring two options: a single Global Fund for Health or international assistance for health through only bilateral arrangements. This analysis first examines a Global Fund for Health, based on Article 2(1) of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, guidance provided by the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and features of the existing Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The chapter then examines the alternative option, comparing the likely qualities of both options in terms of being aligned with national priorities (if appropriately set), additional (i.e., incentivizing domestic mobilization of financial resources), reliable in the long run, coordinated, and sufficient. The chapter concludes by analyzing the political feasibility of both options.
