Abstract

The chapter examines the extent to which the right to health language, concepts and approaches of Article 12 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) are mirrored in health jurisprudence in the European region. In particular the approaches of the European Court of Human Rights, the European Committee of Social Rights, European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and the Court of Justice of the European union (CJEU) to issues of health and rights are considered. The chapter suggests that with the exception of the CJEU approach, there is evidence of an emerging consensus of approach in the European region beyond the use of the phrase 'right to health'
