    Abstract:
    Rare are instances which entail a truly global impact. And, it is even rarer when it is marked by such immeasurable human suffering. With the onset and onslaught of Covid-19 pandemic, right to health has assumed central stage in public discourse. Health is a composite right, and an amalgamation of various underlying elements including clean environment, nutritious food, potable water, sanitary conditions. This is the true import of right to health. Thus, it cannot be viewed in a restrictive sense of relating only to timely and appropriate healthcare facilities. This conveys that health cannot be perceived in silos; and accordingly has to be necessarily conceptualized in light of certain inter-linking quintessential features. The correlation between right to health and human right is an example of it. Human rights imbibe certain natural right into the concept of right to health, like liberty and equality. Consequently, human right breathes vitality into right to health.
