[Comment] Realisation of human rights to health and through health

The powerful interplay between health and the human rights of women, children, and adolescents forms the cornerstone of the global development agenda. When their right to health is upheld, their access to all other human rights is enhanced.1 The corollary holds true. When their right to health is denied, the impacts inhibit their exercise of other human rights, undermining their potential and undoing realisation of the promise of the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030. That is why whole-of-government leadership is needed to fulfil the potential of the powerful nexus of intersecting, interdependent rights.
