WRGHC WWU Conference!

Western Washington University is proud to host the 15th Annual Western Regional Global Health Conference (WRGHC) April 26-28, 2019.

 

This conference is one of the largest student-led global health conferences in the nation. The theme this year is Criminalization of the Body.

 

The WRGHC will explore current issues related to how policy and policing impact the health of marginalized communities around the world, nationally, and locally. Applying a feminist framework, we will examine systemic racism, power, and privilege as they relate to criminalization based on immutable characteristics such as nationality/ethnicity, race, indigeneity, gender and sexuality. With a particular focus on liberation, emancipatory imaginaries, and health activism-- we will uncover injustice happening globally and what we can all do about it. The key sub-themes are Race/Ethnicity, Immigration, and LGBTQ+ justice.

 

Keynote speaker: Festus Kisa

 

Festus Ibanda Kisa is a sexual and gender minorities activist, and sexual reproductive health and rights advocate in Q-Initiative Eldoret, Kenya. He has been a program coordinator since 2013, with a background of social work, HIV testing, and counseling, Human Rights for Sexual Minorities.
