Benjamin Meier and Alicia Yamin on Right to Health Litigation and HIV/AIDS Policy

Benjamin Mason Meier (UNC-Chapel Hill) and Alicia Ely Yamin have posted Right to Health Litigation and HIV/AIDS Policy on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This article sketches the evolving interaction between human rights case law and HIV/AIDS policy. To clarify the need for such analysis, this article discusses the promise of human rights litigation in providing accountability for state public health commitments. Given the promise of this litigation in realizing public health outcomes, this article reviews the origins and development of human rights jurisprudence for HIV/AIDS. With this enforcement movement facing increasing criticism for distorting the global health governance agenda, the authors examine the backlash against this human rights jurisprudence in setting HIV/AIDS policy. This article concludes that scholars and practitioners must engage in comparative analyses of these rights-based litigation strategies and empirical research on their public health impacts. . . .
