Abstract

Bioethics, health law, and human rights can be viewed either as distinct areas of study and advocacy, or as interrelated areas that not only overlap, but have synergistic energy that can be concentrated to produce social change and promote social justice. This chapter introduces a way to think about this interrelationship and applies it to real-world cases.
