There have been recent calls to establish a framework convention on health grounded in the human right to health. But is there really a human right to health? If there is, what does it entitle us to, and how do we decide? This lecture by John Tasioulas offered new answers to these questions, and further argued that global health policy has to be responsive to all human rights, not just the right to health, and that we must address more than human rights in order to create effective global health policy.  I. Glenn Cohen, Faculty Director of the Petrie-Flom Center, responded.

Cosponsored by the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School.
