On 10 December 2014, the United Nations’ Human Rights Day, the Health and Social Care Academy brought to you the first podcast in a series of thoughtful considerations of how to achieve transformational change in Scotland’s health and social care system.
The first in the Being Human series comes from Jonathan Cohen, Deputy Director of the Public Health Program at Open Society Foundations and is produced in association with the Care Inspectorate.
Interviewed by Duncan Wilson, Project Director at Open Society Foundations, Jonathan gives valuable reflections on the relationship between health and human rights, his recent time in Scotland and the potential impact of Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights.

The podcast also considers the opportunities to progress the health and human rights agenda on a global scale. Listen now
