Journal Description

Basic information


Health and Human Rights provides an inclusive forum for action-oriented dialogue among human rights practitioners. The journal endeavors to increase access to human rights knowledge in the health field by linking an expanded community of readers and contributors. Health and Human Rights includes "Research" and "Review" articles. The Research section focuses rigorous scholarly analysis on the conceptual foundations and challenges of rights discourse and action in relation to health. The Review section is dedicated to empowering new voices from the field — highlighting the innovative work of groups and individuals in direct engagement with human rights struggles as they relate to health. These two sections seek to foster engaged scholarship and reflective activism. In doing so, they invite informed action by and with communities to realize the full spectrum of human rights. Health and Human Rights publishes two issues each year in June and December.
