In person: Palais des Nations, Room XXII
Online on Zoom:

Why should the human rights council care about the global health architecture? Should health, human rights and economic experts coordinate, and what connects them? Why should we listen to communities and civil society working at global economic forums? What is the role of states and civil society?  Join us for a conversation at HRC 52  about the political economy of health and human rights.  

This side event will address the urgent imperative to incorporate human rights into the global economic architecture for everyone to enjoy the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.
