Physicians for Human Rights

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is an independent organization that uses medicine and science to stop mass atrocities and severe human rights violations against individuals. We use our investigations and expertise to advocate for the:

  • Prevention of individual or small scale acts of violence from becoming mass atrocities
  • Protection of internationally-guaranteed rights of individuals and civilian populations
  • Prosecution of those who violate human rights
The Geisel student chapter of PHR is dedicated to advocacy and education about these issues, both domestically and internationally, and has focused this year on poverty alleviation, prisoner issues, primary care in the global underserved context, and homeless medicine.
