Description:

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been instrumental in enshrining the notion of human dignity in international and domestic law, providing a legal and ethical grounding premised on our basic responsibilities towards each other as members of the ‘human family’. Among these basic responsibilities is the notion that all persons have the right to the highest “attainable standard of health,” which requires available, accessible, quality and non-discriminatory care.  What do these basic legal obligations mean for the provision of health education?  With research demonstrating stark inequities in the realization of the right to health, what role does health education play in ensuring these fundamental rights and obligations?

By the end of this session, participants will be able to describe how human rights, as a key component of education, can inform our learning environments, and both what and how we teach future health care professionals, toward the realization of the right to health care for all.

This presentation on the relationship between human rights and health education serves as an important point of departure in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences implementation of anti-racism initiatives.


Facilitator:

Karen Sharma, Acting Executive Director, Manitoba Human Rights Commission
