Seminar Global Health and Human Rights

18 July 2019

Erasmus Law School, Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands)

News added: 20.04.2019


In a rapidly globalised word, health and human rights are closely related. Violating basic human rights can heavily impact in a negative way the health of individuals and communities. Violating further basic human rights might also lead to inequality and discrimination in access to health-care services. The realisation of human rights in health care is therefore a key-obligation, both at national and global level. But what is the relationship between human rights and global health about? What are the key elements of that complex relationship, what are the key national and international institutions, and how do they respond to human rights challenges in health? These and other issues will be adressed during a one-day seminar, organised by the Erasmus Health Law Observatory, Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands) and IDIVAL, University of Cantabria (Spain) and hosted by the Erasmus Law School.

Healthcare disparities: disruptive healthcare technologies and the patient, a conference held in collaboration with Queen Mary School of Law,


The University of Manchester, School of Law, is proud to host Healthcare disparities: disruptive healthcare technologies and the patient, a conference held in collaboration with Queen Mary School of Law, on the 13 and 14 June 2019.


The question of health inequalities worldwide has become increasingly significant. Disparities in healthcare refer to often-negative differences in healthcare provision between different population groups, such as race/ethnicity, age, socio-economic group and gender.


Disruptive technologies offer the potential to reset the playing field, injecting new opportunities for healthcare development and offering the potential to provide cheaper, simpler products or services


The conference encourages fundamental and challenging questions to be asked: Are disparities in health here to stay? To what extent is technological innovation the answer to health inequalities? And what legal and ethical benefits and challenges might emerge in the future?


In addition to keynote and breakout presentations from world-leading experts, Professor Nicolas Terry, Professor Ian Freckelton QC, Professor Tamara Hervey, Professor Mette Hartlev and Professor Richard Ashcroft, there will be a drinks reception at The University of Manchester on 13 June.


Delegates are invited to attend a networking dinner at The Crowne Plaza, Oxford Road on Friday 14 June for an additional fee.  A pre-conference PGR day will be held on 12 June 2019.

This event has been approved by the Royal College of Physicians for 18 category 1 (external) CPD credits
