Description:

What is the relationship between sex, drugs and global health? What role do human rights and the law play in mediating this relationship? Do our moral intuitions align with what’s best from a public health perspective? What should we expect from policy makers, health care workers, legislators or judges?

Join us for a discussion with Anand Grover, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health (2008-2014), Senior Advocate on the Supreme Court of India and Co-Founder of the HIV/ AIDS Unit, Lawyers Collective, (Delhi/Mumbai) and Brian Citro, Assistant Clinical Professor of Law, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. Mr. Grover has litigated dozens of cases in the Supreme Court and High Courts of India, involving issues ranging from LGBT rights to access to medicines, from mandatory death sentences for drug possession to complex developments in intellectual property law. Prof. Citro and Mr. Grover will discuss Mr. Grover's experience working at the forefront of health, human rights and the law in India and around the world.

Lunch provided.
