Human Rights and NCDs Short Course

NCD Short Course

This month the Program on Global Health and Human Rights is piloting an open access, free online resource in the form of a short course on non communicable diseases (NCDs) and human rights. The course can be accessed at

The course is designed to boost literacy and support action to address the links between NCDs, human rights and public health, and is intended to be a useful resource for advocacy groups, researchers, policy makers, practitioners, students, and anyone interested in exploring and addressing the links between human rights and NCDs.

The course is divided into seven sessions, and includes lectures, video links, and access to key documents. Course lecturers include Professor Ferguson and Professor Gruskin, as well as David Patterson (International Development Law Organization) and Marcus Stahlhofer (World Health Organization).
