Title: Health as a Human Right
This course will explore the concept and application of health as a human right from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is designed for advanced undergraduates and presumes some prior familiarity with the concept of human rights, though no previous coursework is required. While the course may attract students with specific interests in the health professions, no biomedical background is required and the approach will focus on human rights perspectives rooted in the social sciences rather than on biomedical ones.
