|Event Date/Time: Jun 10, 2013||End Date/Time: Jun 13, 2013|
This four-day intensive program is designed to equip professionals in the health, humanitarian, and human rights fields to understand and apply the concepts, skills, and tools of integrating health and human rights into their professional activities. Participants will acquire an in-depth knowledge of international human rights and humanitarian law through the lens of real-world application, especially in contexts of poverty, conflict, and social upheaval. Participants will also develop insight into methods used to analyze the human rights dimensions of public health programs and policies, and international mechanisms and procedures that further the human rights of vulnerable individuals and populations. The program will critically examine existing institutions and systems from the perspectives of both theory and practice and assess their role in promoting and protecting a broad range of health-related human rights.
