ÖZET
Sağlık hakkı, temel insan hakları yaklaşımı içerisinde ele alınmalıdır. Uluslararası sözleşmeler ve bildirgelerde, sağlık hakkının öznesinin herkes olduğu açıkça tanımlanmasına rağmen bugün sosyoekonomik ve politik nedenlerle bu hakkın yalnızca bir retorikten ibaret kaldığına tanıklık etmekteyiz. Yerel ve küresel sağlık politikalarının iç içe geçtiği günümüzde, sağlık hakkı ilkelerinin, insan haklarının doğası ve bunların etrafında inşa edilmesi gerekliliği hakkında bitmemiş felsefi, politik ve yasal tartışmalar şimdilik bitmeyecek gibi gözükmektedir. Politik öznelikleri olmayan vatansız kişilerin, devletlerin biyopolitik çıkarlarına alet olduğu ve onların gerçekte insandan daha aşağıya indirgenen yaşamlarının hümaniteryen faaliyetlerle meşrulaştırıldığı iddia edilmektedir. Vatansızlık, birçok ülkede kişileri kamplarda yahut şehirlerde düşük ücretlerle ve sigortasız çalışmak ve sağlık güvencesi olmadan yaşamaya mahkûm etmiş ve onları toplumların günah keçileri hâline getirmiştir. Bazı kamplarda ve bölgelerde insani yaşam koşullarından uzak, hatta sağlıklarını bozacak bir iklimde yaşamak durumunda kalan vatansız kişilerin, birçok ülkede sağlık hakları acil bakım düzeyine indirgenmiştir. Sonuç olarak dünyanın her yerinde ıskarta hayatlar birikmiş ve sağlıkları da zaten önemsiz zannedilen hayatlarına mukabil ıskartaya çıkarılmıştır. Hukuki statüleri ne olursa olsun kişiler (vatansız, mülteci, şartlı mülteci, sığınmacı, göçmen veya belgesiz göçmen), birçok ülkede hastalandıklarında tedaviye ulaşabilmek için haysiyetlerini alt-üst eden bir dizi prosedür veya engellerle karşı karşıya kalmaktadırlar. Bu çalışmada, konuya yönelik bir literatür derlenmeye çalışılmıştır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Mülteci; sağlık hakkı; tıp etiği; biyopolitika; göç ve sağlık
ABSTRACT
The right to health should be addressed within the basic human rights approach. Although international conventions and declarations define clearly that the subject of the right to health is everyone, today we witness that this right has remained limited to the rhetoric realm because of socioeconomic and political reasons. In today's world where local and global health policies are intertwined; the philosophical, political and legal debates about building the right to health principles around the nature of human rights seem to be endless for now. It is claimed that stateless persons who aren't political subjects, are tools for the biopolitical interests of states. Their lives, which are actually reduced as less than human, are legitimized by humanitarian activities. In many countries, statelessness has condemned people to work in cities for low wages without health insurance or to live in camps and has made them the scapegoats of societies. In many countries, health rights of stateless people who have to live in an environment far from humane living conditions in some camps and regions, even deteriorating their health, have been reduced to the level of emergency care. As a result, discarded lives have accumulated all over the world, and their health has been discarded in response to their lives, which were already thought to be worthless. Regardless of their legal status (e.g., stateless, refugee, conditional refugee, asylum seeker, immigrant, or undocumented immigrant) people in many countries face a series of procedures or barriers that undermine their dignity in order to access treatment when they fall ill. In this study, literature on the subject has been tried to be compiled.
