(p.411) Chapter 28 Financing governments: towards achieving the right to health
Advancing the Human Right to Health

Joia S. Mukherjee

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the history of the right to health as it was framed within the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the aspirations that followed the covenant, and how limiting public financing created a lack of a rights-based agenda for health. It also presents the new paradigm of the twenty-first century for measuring the progressive realization of rights, and provides a powerful example of how civil society, governments, and other duty bearers have worked together to address one of the most pressing public health challenges of our time: HIV/AIDS.

Keywords:   human rights, icescr, public financing, public health, hiv, aids
