For more than ten years, EWMI has brought a rights-based approach to global health issues. EWMI programs in nearly a dozen countries address areas that are too often overlooked by traditional health programs, focusing on the inequities that can stall the resolution of some of the most intractable health issues. These inequities include discrimination which can block the delivery of health services to those in greatest need, unlawful business practices which allow counterfeit and substandard drugs to flood markets with impunity, and the violation of regulations which allows injury and disease linked to environmental causes. For example, in South and Southeast Asia, EWMI leverages the role of the justice sector to help take down barriers impeding the vital progress in the fight against diseases such as polio, malaria, and TB. Drawing on its years of experience with the justice sector, EWMI is targeting these risks to global health equity through new programs and approaches around the world.
