February 2019 – Alicia Ely Yamin
Alicia Yamin points to three principle challenges for promoting justice in the health law policy:

- The right to health must be reflected in the institutions and how they prioritize
- It must be shown that treating health as a right can contribute to fairer health systems, more just societies, and help to curb global health inequity.
