A Rights-Based Approach to Research: Assessing the Right to Water in Haiti

Satterthwaite, Margaret L.  & Amanda M. Klasing, A Rights-Based Approach to Research: Assessing the Right to Water in Haiti, in RIGHTS-BASED APPROACHES TO PUBLIC HEALTH 143 (Elvira Beracochea et al eds., 2011)

The book focuses on solutions in public health problems that are rights-based. The human rights framework as described in the book helps public health actors know when to intervene, device methods of intervention, and measure the impact of their intervention strategies. The book encourages public health practitioners to be advocates of human rights in the course of their work. It also addresses the challenges that such practitioners face as they promote human rights in their work. It also includes tools and case studies that those interested in implementing a rights-based, evidence-based approach to public health problems can use. The book also includes a section on how rights-based approaches can be used in cases of high health disparities and how they can be used to shape policy in health care reform.
