This book provides healthcare and legal practitioners and students at all levels with the theory and practical application necessary to understand and apply bioethics, human rights and health law to their present and future work. The topics of bioethics, human rights and health law are part of the core curriculum for all students in Health Sciences in South Africa. Bioethics, Health Law and Human Rights: Principles and Practice therefore comes at no better time.
As the book is a guide, it does not deal exhaustively with the topics discussed. Instead, it aims to give healthcare and legal practitioners some general guidelines which it is hoped will be of practical use to them.
