This area of work focuses on engagement in domestic and international litigation and standard-setting processes to advance health, justice, and equity in all of its dimensions through the strategic use of human rights legal frameworks. Strategic use of the law includes directly representing individual and collective victims of human rights violations, as well as providing technical assistance to relevant actors involved in legislative drafting, policymaking, and judicial practice. The Health and Human Rights Initiative (HHRI) conducts academic research and analysis aimed at informing the adoption of laws and policies that advance justice and equity in the provision of health care services. HHRI also analyzes and disseminates health and human rights legal standards.
