Health and Human Security in The Americas

September 6–7, 2012
Lima, Peru
On September 6–7, 2012, JCIE organized a public seminar and workshop on “Health and Human Security in the Americas” in Lima, Peru, in partnership with the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO). The meetings, which were meant to build on the discussions at JCIE’s “Health and Human Security in Africa” seminar organized in May 2011 in Dakar, Senegal, also follow PAHO’s 2010 resolution to integrate the human security concept into member countries’ national health plans. Participants in the Lima seminar will share preliminary findings from case studies in Latin America and Africa, with the goals of identifying the added value of human security to the health field and of developing guidelines for implementing human security approaches for policymakers and practitioners, particularly those working at the community level.
