Comparative Analysis of Human Rights in Global Governance for Health

(p.557) Conclusion
Human Rights in Global Health

Benjamin Mason Meier

Lawrence O. Gostin

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter analyzes the structural determinants of human rights mainstreaming for global health and considers common themes for the implementation of human rights through global governance for health. Human rights are implemented in global health through a dynamic global governance system—extending across the World Health Organization’s mandate to realize the right to health; United Nations specialized agency efforts to address health-related human rights; economic governance to support rights-based priorities in public health funding; and human rights governance to advance global health. The unique context of each institution is crucial to implementing human rights for global health; however, there are generalizable institutional themes that can be drawn from these experiences. By comparing the structures that facilitate organizational efforts to advance human rights across the contributing chapters in this edited volume, it becomes possible to understand the institutional determinants of the rights-based approach to health.
