Three days of powerful dialogue
16 - 18 November 2018 Kingston, ON.
The 2018 Health and Human Rights Conference (HHRC) will be examining contemporary drug issues as they relate to the Canadian landscape. As of 2018, we are poised at a critical point in many drug-related contentions, particularly with regard to the provision of and access to necessary drugs and to the control of substance wholesale and usage. Given the imminence and influential nature of these affairs in every public sphere, HHRC 2018 aspires to unpack some of these conversations and to provide students and community members with an entry point to understanding the underlying forces that have shaped headline issues today, including the legalization of cannabis, the opioid crisis, and pharmacare.

The 2020-2021 Health and Human Rights Conference (HHRC) entitled “Navigating a
Colonial Institution: Medicine and Systemic Racism” will centre around systemic racism and its effects on the health of Black, Indigenous, immigrant, and other ethnic minority populations in Canada. HHRC 2020-2021 hopes to engage diverse community voices in addition to academic perspectives, with the hope that all attendees come away with new passions, motivations, and actionable ideas regarding human rights in their local and global communities.
