Health is fundamental to human well-being and social and economic development. It is in recognition of this fact that the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health and the right to physical, mental and moral integrity are enshrined in many international human rights instruments. Yet health is not always at the forefront of human rights discussions and, conversely, public health agencies too infrequently consider the human rights dimensions of their work.
