Public health and human rights: The work ahead of us
Date:11/20/2008

On December 5, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and The New York Academy of Sciences will host a half-day symposium to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The event, "Public Health and Human Rights: The Work Ahead of Us," will evaluate progress in public health and human rights over the last 60 years.

Navanethem Pillay, SJD, LLM, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights will be the keynote speaker.

Adopted by the United Nations on December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was the first international recognition that human rights are absolute and inclusive of all, and that they should concern the entire international community. This doctrine has served as the foundation of international human rights law, and it continues to inspire international human rights treaties and declarations, regional conventions, and national constitutions. Sadly, where human rights are ignored, health care tends to be unequal, inadequate or nonexistent.

The symposium will explore the roadblocks, contradictions and challenges to public health and human rights in the U.S. and abroad.

What: Public Health and Human Rights: The Work Ahead of Us

When: Friday, December 5, 2008 1-5 p.m.

Where: The New York Academy of Sciences Conference Center
7 World Trade Center
250 Greenwich Street, 40th floor
New York, New York 10007
