    Patents on Drugs: Manufacturing Scarcity or Advancing Health?Bebe Loff & Mark Heywood - 2002 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 30 (4):621-631.
    Respect for and promotion of the human rights of people with HIV/AIDS is now an entrenched component of the global response to HIV. However, as the global HIV epidemic has turned into a global AIDS epidemic, and as the death toll mounts, one area of human rights—the right to health care—has become fiercely contested. In particular, the degree to which patents on medicines impede what the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has described as the “human right” of access (...)

    A Global Framework Convention on Health: Would it Help Developing Countries to Fulfil Their Duties on the Right to Health? A South African Perspective.Mark Heywood & John Shija - 2010 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 38 (3):640-646.
    This article argues from a South African perspective that national experience in attempting to fulfil the right to health supports the need for an international framework. Secondly, we suggest that this framework is not just a matter of good choice or even of justice but of a direct legal duty that falls on those states that have consented to operate within the international human rights framework by ratifying key treaties such as the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (...)

    It is arguable that the delivery of global health has reached an impasse. This is evident not only in unresolved debates that are raging about where to allocate health aid or how to sustain and expand funding for AIDS treatment, but also in challenges facing national health systems that are incapable of purely domestic resolution. But there is some irony and much opportunity in this situation. Not only have the last 20 years seen an unprecedented growth in funding for health, (...)
