Editorial: Is the right to food in hospitals a human right?

Diana Cárdenas,

Human rights are philosophical, juridical and political concepts which posit that every human being possesses inalienable, universal rights, regardless of the statutory legal framework in force and independent of other factors such as ethnicity or nationality. Each person, regardless of their social status, race, or religion, is endowed with an “inherent dignity and … equal and inalienable rights” which are exercisable at all times, even if their enforcement stands in opposition to the wider society or to power. Consequently, the concept of human rights is, by definition, universal and egalitarian and wholly incompatible with systems predicated on the supremacy of a race, people, social group, or that of an individual.
