Mortality due to low-quality health systems in the universal health coverage era
Publisher: The Lancet
A systematic analysis of amenable deaths in 137 countries: Universal health coverage has been proposed as a strategy to improve health in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs). However, this is contingent on the provision of good-quality health care. We estimate the excess mortality for conditions targeted in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that are amenable to health care and the portion of this excess mortality due to poor-quality care in 137 LMICs, in which excess mortality refers to deaths that could have been averted in settings with strong health systems.
Tuberculosis and Human Rights
Publisher: the Open Society Foundations, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and Stop TB Partnership, in collaboration with UNAIDS & the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law

These same factors of marginalization, many of which are related to unrealized human rights, can impede people’s access to TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
