About Health Righters

Here at Health Righters, we aim to take an interdisciplinary approach to exploring the interplay between healthcare and human rights. Some of our current pieces span topics including the Black Lives Matter movement, homelessness, mental health, incarceration, and the current COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the pieces in our current issue aim to shed light on the several individuals and populations being denied basic human rights as a result of the pandemic. By highlighting personal stories, consolidating existing research, and reaching out for expert opinions, our work brings a variety of different disciplines into conversation. 

Together, we strive to think deeply about global issues at the intersection of healthcare and human rights, and we hope that through our pieces, we can inspire our readers to do the same.

We are a team of 60+ writers, editors, creatives, and web designers. We come from all across the world, spanning over 12 universities and a wide variety of disciplines.
