On June 20th Professor John Tasioulas attended a meeting at the World Bank in Washington, DC at which he presented two reports he has written for the Bank on minimum core obligations of human rights and their application to the right to health. In his framework paper, Professor Tasioulas explained the general idea of minimum core obligations. They are the sub-set of obligations associated with economic, social and cultural rights that all states must comply with immediately, as opposed to taking measures to realise progressively over time. In the paper on the minimum core obligations of the human right to health, Professor Tasioulas outlined how this notion has developed  in the international, regional and national spheres. He particularly stressed the role that minimum core obligations of the right to health can play in advancing the UN's Sustainable Development Goal of Universal Health Coverage, and how they can assist with challenges of priority-setting in the context of limited health care resources by identifying which forms of health care, and which potential beneficiaries, to prioritise. These two papers, along with a paper on the right to education by Professor Angelina Fisher (NYU), will in due course be published by the World Bank.
