Human Rights

We work to protect human rights for all people. This includes monitoring the effect of emergency responses on human rights, as the center did during the Ebola epidemic. The center also produces educational materials on human rights, including our latest textbook, Health and Human Rights in a Changing World. One of our focal activities is providing health care and advocating for immigrants, refugees, and torture survivors through Global Lawyers and Physicians—the center’s non-governmental organization—and Boston Medical Center’s Immigrant & Refugee Health Program.
