Socio-economic rights, such as the right to health, are central to our research and teaching at the Centre for Applied Human Rights.

Long-term interdisciplinary projects aim to frame diseases such as noma as a human rights concern, thereby seeking to achieve policy change at international and domestic levels and a better prevention of this devastating childhood disease.
