Using the Right to Health to Restore Dignity

Organized by the Graduate Institute of Health, Global Health Centre

Using the Right to Health to Restore Dignity

September 17, 2020


Vulnerability is part of the human experience. People are not inherently vulnerable – vulnerability based on age, race, gender, class, sexuality, geography, drug use, undocumented migrant status, health status often happens as a result of structural drivers. People in vulnerable situations deserve to have their rights respected, protected, and fulfilled. And all of the solutions that we are coming up with—law reform or policy updates, procurement or services, or public health, communication, philanthropy—have to be centered around restoration of dignity. The new UN Special Rapporteur on the right to health, Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, will give her first talk at the Graduate Institute on 17 September 2020 and explore the right to health as a tool to restore dignity.


Tlaleng Mofokeng, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health
Moderated by Suerie Moon, Co-Director, Global Health Centre
