Research at the University of St Andrews School of Medicine


We study the upstream barriers to health and well being through the lens of core human rights or survival rights.

Our current theme is called  ‘Survival’  and we study the volume of Lost Government Revenues and the potential in terms of public services and thus survival rights if these were curtailed.

As the main sources of government revenue are taxes we are interested in lost government revenues as a result of tax losses and the impact this has on public   services and thus on survival rights. 

Our current project under Survival Rights Project is called the Global Lives Improved and Saved Tool, see the Survival Project.
