Physicians for Human Rights (http://physiciansforhumanrights.org/) mobilizes health professionals to advance health, dignity, and justice, and promotes the right to health for all. PHR investigates mass atrocities and human rights violations against individuals and works to stop them. PHR’s Nobel Peace Prize-winning work and research can be found anywhere from conflict zones, to AIDS-ravaged Africa, to US prisons and immigrant detention centers. The BUSM Physicians for Human Rights chapter seeks to highlight such work, as well as those physicians who document and fight human rights abuses on behalf of their patients at BMC.
