Program Description:

Study the intersections of health, human rights, and cities at multiple sites in Kenya, where rapid urbanization is transforming access, equity, and well-being.

kenyaThis program examines health and human rights in Kenya through a complex constellation of urban issues including housing, urban infrastructures, land tenure, informal settlements, food (in)security in the city, and evictions. Students examine Kenya’s healthcare challenges, practices, and systems, in both rural and urban contexts, together with analyses of locally informed debates surrounding human rights.

  • Housing policies and practices in Kenya and their implication for health and human rights
  • Kenyan healthcare systems and healthcare challenges, including demographics, public health education, differential access to healthcare,
  • Health issues in Kenya, including HIV/AIDS, health issues of orphaned and vulnerable children, women’s healthcare needs, and mental healthcare
  • Links between access to and reliance on Kenyan healthcare services and the conceptions of human rights of individuals and communities
  • Successful coalition-building efforts, civil society organizations, the private sector, and others pursuing community-based approaches to myriad contemporary issues
