International Health Law and Ethics. Basic Documents contains a collection of treaty documents and soft law on health care rights and health ethics, used in health law training programs. Regional documents and explanatory reports on health care rights, which are derived from international human rights law, provide a way of “unwrapping” government obligations in health care, making rights more specific, accessible and (judicially) accountable. In addition, soft law declarations and medical ethics contribute to understanding the moral meaning of human rights in health care. As such, the principles and standards provide practical guidance for States when dealing with equal access to health care services, the rights of (categories of) patients, biomedical research, organ donation and transplantation, genetics and public health. These topics structure the approach of International Health Law and Ethics. This guide covers the basic documents, while general comments and explanatory reports amplify the principles embodied in the human rights treaties. The authoritative interpretations clarify a ‘European approach’ on the State’s obligations concerning health care rights and ethics. This volume is an initiative of the Erasmus Observatory on Health Law. It will be a helpful guide for all trainers, health care professionals and students interested in human rights issues in health care.

Critical Government Documents on Health Care reviews of many of the major health issues facing us today. The book does not offer any new information nor attempt to take sides. Instead, it is an attempt to gather together information from as many sources as possible and presents arguments for and against the issues covered so that you the reader can come to your own conclusions. Areas covered include killer diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, respiratory diseases, and obesity. It discusses the arguments for and against immunization and looks at issues which impact your health such as the environment and pollution. There is a detailed section on Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and the problems it poses for healthcare providers and caregivers, and this is coupled with all the other issues that arise from a growing aging population. Finally the book discusses external threats such as pandemics, Ebola, and other diseases that can rapidly spread from continent to continent and what is and should be done to contain them. About the Series: The Critical Documents Series looks at critical issues of our times. It provides non-partisan information with no spin about critical players, events, and information from and about Washington from as many sources as possible — from scientific journals and government reports to political manifestos and lobby group publications. It presents arguments for and against the issues covered so that you the reader can come to your own conclusions.
