Health and Human Rights

This program explores the connection between health and human rights and profiles the leaders of a new way of thinking about society, disease and the inter-relation between them. The "cutting edge" people we meet include the late Dr. Jonathan Mann, the first Director of the World Health Organization (WHO)'s Global Program on AIDS, he was a key figure in highlighting the need for a global response to the AIDS' crisis; and Dr. Paul Farmer, the MacArthur "Genius" awardee, a founder of Partners In Health (PIH), and currently a Presley Professor of Medical Anthropology in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard University. Viewers learn that AIDS is only one of many public health issues that need to be re-examined in light of its human rights' implications. Lastly, Charlayne Hunter-Gault interviews Yale law professor Harlan Dalton, author of Racial Healing, and professor Karen Porter, who formerly taught courses at Washington University Law School on AIDS and the law, and today is the Executive Director of Brooklyn Law School's Center for Health, Science, and Public Policy; each address the effects of discrimination on the health of African Americans. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
