Sexual Health, HIV/STI and Human Rights: Course Description

Professor Chris Beyrer gave this one-time lecture in the Dean's Lecture Series Core. The lecture was given in conjunction with the Bloomberg School of Public Health and focuses on human rights in sexual health. The lecture begins with an introduction to human rights and the five principles of human rights. Beyrer then introduces his ideas on how sexual health and sexually transmitted infections are impacted by societies and how using the five principles of human rights impact health. Also covered are how migration, conflict, trafficking, sex work and especially vulnerable groups, such as men who have sex with men, impact sexual health and how their lives can be improved by the five principles of human rights.
