RGHL Seminar Series 2021-2022: Diya Uberoi

Monday, January 31, 2022 01:00to02:30

The RGHL is happy to be launching the new year with a new talk in its seminar series!

It is our pleasure to invite you to a seminar delivered by Diya Uberoi, post-doctoral fellow at the RGHL. Her talk will be entitled “What role can implementation science play in tailoring rights-based strategies to promote more equitable health outcomes?”

“What role can implementation science play in tailoring rights-based strategies to promote more equitable health outcomes?”

Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) play an instrumental role in ensuring that state policies and programmes are tailored to meet the health needs of disadvantaged populations. In the early 2000s, when HIV/AIDS was at its peak in sub-Saharan Africa, CSOs led the advancement of affordable antiretroviral (ARV) drugs. Although significant reform has been achieved by organizations in countries around the world, several contextual barriers still hinder CSOs ability to realize more equitable access to care. With its ability to highlight the contexts in which CSO advocacy and litigation strategies succeed or fail, implementation science offers a viable approach to guide CSOs in their efforts. This presentation considers the way methods in implementation science can enhance our understanding of the contexts in which CSOs rights-based strategies may result in more improved health outcomes.


Diya Uberoi is a postdoctoral fellow at the Research Group on Health Law, where her research focuses on the role rights-based strategies play in promoting more equitable health outcomes. She has a background in international human rights law and has worked with different international organizations. She holds a PhD in International Law from the Graduate Institute for International and Development Studies, an LLM in Global Health Law from Georgetown University Law Center, a JD from Emory University School of Law, and an MPhil in Psychology from the University of Cambridge. Her current research project uses implementation science frameworks to understand the different contextual factors that constrain or facilitate the litigation efforts of civil society organizations in LMICs.

Une attestation de participation sera émise sur demande aux membres du Barreau du Québec et de la Chambre des notaires.
