This course covers the theoretical framework and general concepts and principles of human rights, their relationship to and impact within the health sector. It looks at the rights based approach in achieving the promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to “leave no one behind” with particular emphasis on health related SDGs. The course will use country case studies about integration of a human rights based approach into health policies, strategies, programming, implementation as well as monitoring and evaluation, with relation to indicators of health related SDGs. Policy briefs for advocating application of human rights principles in the health sector will be addressed and the roles of state and non-state actors in terms of rights- holders and duty-bearers examined.
