Seminar on Health and Human Security

On May 14, 2010, more than 130 UN officials, health experts, NGO leaders, and policy analysts took part in a major seminar in New York exploring human security approaches to global health. This was organized to follow up on the release of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s report on human security, and it explored  how the human security concept can be applied in dealing with health issues and other interconnected challenges at the individual and community level.The half-day seminar featured high-level presentations and a panel discussion on the added value of human security approaches to addressing health challenges. It was co-organized by JCIE, the Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations, the Permanent Mission of Norway to the United Nations, the Human Security Unit of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, and the Institute of International Education.
