Book Description

The “human right to healthcare” has had a remarkable rise. It is found in numerous international treaties and national constitutions it is litigated in courtrooms across the globe it is increasingly the subject of study by scholars across a range of disciplines and―perhaps most importantly―it serves as an inspiring rallying cry for health justice activists throughout the world. However though increasingly accepted as a principle the historical roots of this right remain largely unexplored. To Heal Humankind: The Right to Health in History fills that gap combining a sweeping historical scope and interdisciplinary synthesis. Beginning with the Age of Antiquity and extending to the Age of Trump it analyzes how healthcare has been conceived and provided as both a right and a commodity over time and space examining the key historical and political junctures when the right to healthcare was widened or diminished in nations around the globe.

To Heal Humankind will prove indispensable for all those interested in human rights the history of public health and the future of healthcare.
