Evolution at the Interamerican Court of Human Rights: Right to health.

The judicial agenda of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights has dramatically widened in the last few years. New social concerns now dominate its evolving case-law. Particularly, right to health cases have been relevant since 2015 onwards. Protection from disease began to appear as a key component of a new human rights narrative. This brand new line of cases poses significant issues regarding important policy areas such as social welfare and the role of the state in society.
