LAW 6245 Global Health and Human Rights


3 Hours

This interactive course explores the dynamic relationship between global human rights and health. The course utilizes an evidence based approach, studying examples of success and failure around the world, to evaluate different means for improving global health. While the course focuses on major international and regional human rights documents, it also emphasizes the complex web of economic, political, social, and environmental decisions that influence health. Through the course, students will gain a better understanding of the impact of human rights abuses on health, the impact of health policy and practice on human rights, and how the law can help shape both.
