(Public) Health and Human Rights Symposium


The right to health both defines a “health in all policies” agenda and prohibits state cruelty. On April 6, 2016, Guest speakers and UN rapporteurs, Juan Mendez and Dainius Puras discussed how the right to health and torture will help us set a forward-looking health and human rights strategy.  Other guest speakers included George Annas, (George) David Annas, Sondra Crosby, Michael Grodin, Sofia Gruskin, Wendy Mariner, Brendon Reynolds and Daniel Tarantola.
