The Volume 24 June issue of the Health and Human Rights Journal, co-published by Drexel’s Dornsife School of Public Health and the François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, was issued this week with an editorial memorializing Paul Farmer, the Journal’s editor and chief, and a special section focused on the issue of compulsory drug treatment and rehabilitation.

Articles in the issue focused on human rights implications of digital health in India; Tuberculosis (TB) and LGBTIQ+ health in indigenous communities in Canada and Australia; COVID in incarcerated populations in the United States; access to medicines in Peru, and more.

Joe Amon, PhD, MSPH, clinical professor and director of the Office of Global Health, and Nina Sun, JD, assistant clinical professor and deputy director of global health, collaborated with Mu Lin, a scholar based in Beijing, on an article examining China’s never ending digital surveillance of people arrested for drug use.

Also in the new issue, Amon and fellow researchers from Human Rights Watch and the head judge overseeing the correctional system in South Africa, wrote a short commentary on the “pandemic treaty” currently being negotiated by the World Health Organization.
