The journal Health and Human Rights, based at the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, highlights bioethics and the right to health in its June 2015 issue. It also includes papers on child trafficking in the U.S., sex workers’ right to health in Cambodia and the U.S., and training of health staff in U.S. prisons. Other papers explore applying a human rights framework to issues such as maternal health, the use of antiretroviral drugs, minimum standard of care in clinical trials, and reproductive rights in Argentina.

The issue was guest edited by Jennifer Gibson, Lisa Forman, and Stephanie Nixon of the University of Toronto Joint Center for Bioethics.
