The Human Rights Key serves as a valuable infographic to guide students to connect their classroom learning with the reality of local regional and international health and human rights issues. The framework enables students in the health professions to recognize relationships and connections between human rights, their own personal realities, legal mechanisms, and their future clinical practice. The tool was developed for Year 3 medical students in their Obstetrics and Gynaecology rotation. The heuristic Human Rights Key promotes their learning for and about human rights in women's health. It provides a medium to guide self-reflection through a sequential process helping clarify complex concepts. Health professionals are in powerful positions to advance social justice as duty bearers and as rights holders. The Health Sciences Faculty at the University of Cape Town, UCT South Africa, has included human rights learning in its reformed curriculum since 2002, in recognition of the need to develop socially responsible practitioners.
