Health and Human Rights Journal
Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health is proud to be co-publishing the Health and Human Rights journal in collaboration with the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University.
Health and Human Rights began publication in 1994 under the editorship of Jonathan Mann. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners In Health, assumed the editorship in 2007.
In 2019, Drexel joined the Harvard FXB Center in co-publishing the journal.
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.
Following the lead of a growing number of open access publications, the full text of Health and Human Rights is freely available to anyone with internet access.
Health and Human Rights focuses rigorous scholarly analysis on the conceptual foundations and challenges of rights discourse and action in relation to health. The journal 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.
We seek to foster engaged scholarship and reflective activism. In doing so, we invite informed action to realize the full spectrum of human rights.
