    The UNU International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) is organising a three-day workshop on health and human rights, in collaboration with Sofia Gruskin, a globally renowned health and human rights professor from the Global Health and Human Rights Program of the University of Southern California.

    Human rights concepts play a key role in health research. This workshop focuses on the effectiveness, limits, and possibilities of human rights interventions in advancing the highest attainable standard of health. The course will explore innovative case studies on a range of topics, from reproductive health/rights to migrant and refugee health. The workshop brochure is available here.

    Deadline for registration is 13 July 2018. Once shortlisting is complete, selected participants will be contacted with further details including payment instructions. To streamline interactions, the workshop will be limited to 40 participants.

    For more information on the workshop, or to register, see the event announcement on the UNU-IIGH website.
