Michael Kirby Centre for Public Health and Human Rights
The Michael Kirby Centre for Public Health and Human Rights brings together the best expertise in law, medicine and science. Our research examines how human rights and law has contributed to good health, particularly in vulnerable communities in Australia and the developing world.
We're part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
We believe human rights is vital to good public health practice. Our research informs this belief. We’ve explored complex ideas including pro bono legal clinics in hospitals and regulatory intervention to prevent obesity.
You’ll benefit from an interactive approach and an understanding of cultural relevance. We’ve been invited to contribute to teaching by groups as diverse as the World Health Organization, the American Government, and Fiji National University.
We have support from around the world.
