The Conference

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.
