MHH 312 Health and Human Rights


3 credits

Students will explore issues that arise at the intersection of health care and human rights. The provision and protection of basic human rights is the surest way to improve the overall health of vulnerable populations. Public health problems such as infant mortality, widespread preventable illness, and malnutrition frequently occur among people who suffer from violations of their basic human rights. Human rights establish basic standards for the provision of health care and ethical norms for the treatment of patients. Topics include: human rights and public health, informed consent, and access to health care for vulnerable persons.
