What is your research question(s)?

The main research question

1. To what extent does Ivory-Coast protect human rights in the use of health and care services?

Specific questions

1. What are the human rights barriers in health and care services?

2. What are the existing interventions to address the human rights barriers when using health and care services?

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is the purpose of this study? Justify why a study on this topic needs to be carried out:

The purpose of this study is to critically analyse human rights protection in the Ivory Coast when using health and care services. Over seventy years ago, the World Health Organization (WHO), recognized the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health as a fundamental human right. Since then, the right to health has been enshrined in many constitutions all over the world including Ivory Coast’s constitution thus indicating a link between health and human rights.

However, there have been increased inequities related to race, gender and economics that have led to an abortion of respect for human rights. In the Ivory Coast, the government imposes user fees for public services such as health thus requiring people to have adequate finances to access modern health and care services. User fee issue is a major constrain in health and care services that deny many people the enjoyment of their right to health (Azevedo, 2017). Many poor people are therefore denied access to this critical human right.

A study in this topic will affirm the strong link between health and human rights and thus encourage the government of Ivory Coast to address human rights barriers to health and care services.

The main objective/question of the research was to analyze the determinants of the health care renunciation among women in the city of Abidjan. It took a cross-sectional approach and found that financial reason was the main cause for health renunciation among the women.

The study’s main question focuses on the reasons for oral healthcare renunciation and the socio-economic determinants. It takes a cross-sectional and descriptive approach and finds that many people forgo oral healthcare due to costs, income level and remoteness of health structures.

The main research question that this article focuses on is the role of interdisciplinary collaboration between human rights and heath in the realization of the right to health. It takes an exploratory approach to assess the challenges of operationalizing the right to health. It finds that to operationalize the right, there is a need to develop deep expertise to understand that the right to health is an expanded right that includes the social determinants of health.

Meier, B. M. (2005). The highest attainable standard: advancing a collective human right to public health. Colum. Hum. Rts. L. Rev.37, 101.

The main question that the article answers is the difficulties in addressing public health. The article takes an advocacy approach to affirm that public health is a necessary precondition for fulfilling the right to health in the modern day of globalization. It finds that collective right to public health is complementary to the individual right to health and appreciates the need for a framework that explicitly acknowledges the public health interventions necessary to fulfill individual health needs.

The main question/objective that the article focusses on is equity and the realization of the right to health in Latin America. It takes an exploratory approach and finds that inequalities in health service utilization exacerbate human rights violation since there is a greater spending among the poor to access health and care services.
