Los mandatos constitucionales sobre el derecho a la salud: implicaciones de equidad y eficiencia


  • Ramon Abel Castaño



El reconocimiento de los derechos sociales, económicos y culturales (DESC), es el segundo hito en materia de derechos humanos en el contexto internacional, después de la proclamación de los derechos civiles y políticos. Esta secuencia en el reconocimiento de los derechos humanos, ha llevado a clasificar los civiles y políticos como derechos de primera generación, y los DESC como de segunda generación. El reconocimiento de los DESC se materializa en su inclusión en los textos constitucionales de un buen número de países, o de su reconocimiento implícito aún sin estar incluido como un mandato constitucional.
