Sinopsis

La judicialización de la atención médica ha aumentado dramáticamente en la última década en todo el mundo. Si bien este activismo judicial ha contribuido indudablemente a garantizar la protección de este derecho, subsisten muchos obstáculos a pesar de los avances en el tema. El objetivo de este libro es evaluar los diferentes desafíos y oportunidades que tienen los estados para proteger el derecho a la salud, al tiempo que mantiene un nivel equilibrado de activismo judicial. Más específicamente, busca identificar en qué contextos se justifica el activismo judicial para proteger el derecho a la salud mediante el análisis de la dinámica de los litigios y sus consecuencias. El libro comienza presentando un caso en España: Juan Antonio Maldonado muestra cómo pueden surgir conflictos entre diferentes instituciones como resultado de desacuerdos sobre la protección del derecho a la salud en contextos de crisis económica. En consecuencia, la Corte tuvo que tomar decisiones difíciles sobre la manera en que se deben resolver estos conflictos. Posteriormente, se presenta una experiencia en Eslovaquia, Europa Central. Barbara Pavlíkova examina el sistema de salud eslovaco que describe su desarrollo después de la caída del comunismo y cómo muchos factores lo están afectando actualmente. En una línea similar, Cippitani y Colcelli se centran en el tema de los derechos sociales y en cómo se reconocen en el contexto italiano. Y finalmente, Rodolfo Gutiérrez examina el caso de Colombia, analizando cómo el sistema, a pesar de ampliar su nivel de cobertura, está generando actualmente un alto nivel de judicialización de la salud. El capítulo final lleva a cabo un análisis comparativo de los casos estudiados para hacer algunas recomendaciones.
