LW 740 Human Rights and Health

SPH will be offering a new course on the Charles River Campus in spring 2009.

LW 740 Human Rights and Health will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00-6:30 (Jan. 15- April 30th)

Brief description:
Health is closely linked to the realization of human rights. Preventable illness, infant mortality, and premature death, for example, are closely tied to societal discrimination and violation of human rights. This course explores the relationship between human rights and health by examining relevant international declarations in historical context, exploring the meaning of “human rights” and “health,” and analyzing specific case studies that illuminate the problems, prospects, and potential methods of promoting health by promoting human rights on the national and international levels.
