Call for Submissions: Special Issue on Proposed Framework Convention on Global Health
Health and Human Rights, a peer-reviewed open access journal under the editorship of Partners in Health co-founder Paul Farmer, is published semi-annually, with new issues released in June and December. From 2012, selected papers in press are available prior to issue publication, thereby fast-tracking access to new research and enabling authors to cite their work. Submissions are welcomed at any time.
Health and Human Rights will be publishing a special issue in June 2013 on a proposed Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH). An FCGH would be based in the right to health and aimed at reducing national and global health inequities. It would ensure universal health coverage, establish a framework for sufficient and sustained funding, improve accountability, raise the priority of health in other legal regimes, and meet major challenges in global governance for health, such as poor coordination.
