This Workshop for Ethics in Business will analyze the right to health, an element often overlooked in the study of human rights. The international community has begun to consider the "highest attainable standard of health" as a fundamental component of the human rights agenda alongside related issues of poverty and adequate access to water and sanitation.
This event is part of the Carnegie Council's Workshop for Ethics in Business, sponsored by Booz & Company's strategy+business magazine. Support also comes from SAP, Merck, and New York University's Center for Global Affairs.
