BU Dean’s Symposium: “(Public) Health and Human Rights”

Featuring: Juan E. Méndez, Special Rapporteur on Torture, United Nations; and Dainius Pūras, Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, United Nations

The quarterly Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) Dean’s Symposia invite the school community and global thought leaders to stimulate and encourage agenda-setting discussions that can inform and inflect the academic and public conversation.

“(Public) Health and Human Rights.” The right to health both defines a “health in all policies” agenda and prohibits state cruelty. Juan E. Méndez and Dainius Pūras, the UN rapporteurs on the right to health and torture, will help set a forward-looking health and human rights strategy.
