Health constitutes a fundamental right of every human being and an interest of the community, as established by Article 32 of the Constitution. Pursuant to Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every person, without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social status, must be ensured the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of oneself and one's family, including medical care and necessary social services. The health of all peoples is crucial for achieving peace and security and depends on the fullest cooperation of individuals and states. Health should not only be seen as the absence of disease or infirmity, but as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. The Interdisciplinary Research Center for Health Science is an area of multi- and interdisciplinary research involving various professionals from the School who work in medical, bioengineering, computer science, economic and management, social, and legal fields. The Center aims to overcome the rigid categorizations of scientific disciplines, enabling dialogue and synergies on the theme of Health to develop joint research projects, training activities, and outreach efforts. In this way, the Center contributes to the fulfillment of the mission that the School has set for itself in the 2019-2025 Strategic Plan: to "take care of the world and responsibly contribute to its cultural growth and sustainability."
