The Right to Health
Training and Mentorship Program
October 27-November 17, 2022
Learn how we can ensure optimal health for people, animals, and the planet so that we can all thrive together.
The climate emergency, the COVID-19 pandemic, environmental degradation, and other threats plainly illustrate how the rights, health, and wellbeing of humans, other animals, plants, and the shared environment are interdependent.
PZI led a Just One Health Project ECHO four-week virtual training and mentorship program, which outlined how our public policies, institutions, and practices can become socially, environmentally, and economically just, and promote optimal health for all.
This program explored the right to health from a Just One Health perspective, which builds on the One Health framework and places primary prevention, justice, and the interdependent connections between humans, other animals, and the environment at the heart of global and local policy, research, and practice.
- The legal, ethical, and scientific basis for the right to health for humans and nonhuman animals
- Interlinked threats to the right to health for people and animals, and how to advance the right to health locally and globally
- Ways to encourage innovative solutions for building healthy communities and ecologies
