Health is a universal human right, and the ability to live healthy lives and access healthcare when needed affects everyone. This course reflects the significance of health not only for those in clinical roles and the broader health sector, but all of us. It examines the relationship between equity, rights and health at the individual level (the rights and obligations of patients and providers), the institutional level (the forces that shape and inform provision of healthcare), and the environmental level (the interconnectedness of human, animal and environmental health).
