The Centre for Law and Social Justice, in collaboration with the Human Rights Law Centre is hosting a webinar on The Right to Health.

We should all be able to access quality healthcare when we need it, regardless of our bank balance or postcode. But in Australia, this isn’t always the case. Some of us don’t always receive the services we need. This includes people living with disabilities, older people, and people in remote and multicultural communities.

A Charter of Human Rights would be a powerful tool to help Australians uphold their right to health. A Charter would steer politicians into putting our health first when introducing new laws and policies.

Learn more in this online forum with Mohammad Al-Khafaji, Chief Executive Officer of the Federation of Ethnic Community Councils of Australia; Associate Professor Paul Harpur of the University of Queensland; and Keren Adams the acting co-Chief Executive Officer of the Human Rights Law Centre.

The panel will be moderated by Associate Professor Amy Maguire, Centre for Law and Social Justice, University of Newcastle.
