    Abstract

    What does the right to health mean to people who face inequalities and may struggle to access support? This is a pressing issue in Scotland where there is a national commitment to human rights, but where deep seated health inequalities are a major public health concern. The right to the highest attainable standard of health is recognised within the European Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and should be equally available, accessible, acceptable and of good quality to everyone.
