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.
FEBRUARY 4 2023 Virtual
The 2023 HHRC will run in a hybrid virtual and in-person format. This year, we are focused on understanding and contextualizing stigma in healthcare. If you are passionate about learning more about the experience of marginalized communities and the barriers they face in the healthcare system and advocating for equitable care, this conference is for you!
The Queen's Health and Human Rights Conference (HHRC) is an annual event that is entering its 22st year as of 2022-2023. HHRC aims to provide students and community members with the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary conversations about health topics from a human right lens with multidisciplinary perspectives. Wholly student-organized, the conference attracts a diverse audience of fellow students from the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels, as well as community members and even students from other universities across Canada. Over the last 20 years, HHRC has welcomed activists, academics, front-line workers, and many others to the stage to challenge and encourage participants to consider health and human rights more deeply.
