In this seminar, Siri Gloppen and Namita Wahi will share findings from their work on the role of courts in relation to health service delivery. The study - resulting in a book on "Litigating the Right to Health: Can Courts bring Justice to Health" examines the dynamics and effects of right-to-health litigation in six countries - India, South Africa, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Costa Rica. The seminar will have two parts. The first part will focus on the theoretical aspects of studying the role of courts in social transformation generally, and with regard to health in particular. The second part will focus on health rights litigation in India and the impact of such litigation on health service delivery in India.
