In this course we will explore the ways that human rights violations affect health outcomes, the history of how people came to link human rights and health, and the challenge practitioners have had in operationalizing this approach to address the true sources of health disparities and poor health outcomes among vulnerable populations and to help pursue global health justice. To aid in gaining this knowledge, this course will use qualitative research of local health and human rights issues to embody the larger challenge practitioners face in addressing these problems.
