Global Health Ethics - Dr. Sridhar Venkatapuram
Dr. Sridhar Venkatapuram is a Senior Lecturer in Global Health and Philosophy. He is based at the King's Global Health Institute, where he is Director of Global Health Education & Training.
His academic training is in a range of disciplines, including International Relations (Brown University), Public Health (Harvard University), Sociology (Cambridge University) and Political Philosophy (Cambridge University). His doctoral dissertation on the philosophical argument for a moral/human right to 'the capability to be healthy' was examined and passed without corrections by Amartya Sen, Nobel laureate, economist and philosopher. It formed the basis of his first book, Health Justice: An argument from the capabilities approach, published in 2011 by Polity Press.
Sridhar has also been at the forefront of public/global practice and policy for over twenty years. He was a pioneer of the health and human rights movement as the first researcher at Human Rights Watch to examine HIV/AIDS and other health issues directly as human rights concerns (1992-1997).
