Global Health Law Research Guide

This guide is focused on international and cross-border legal regimes for addressing health law issues.

Getting Started

Public health concerns are no longer confined by geographic areas as international travel and trade easily transcend national borders. For example, pandemics, tobacco use, health care access, and non-communicable diseases (such as diabetes, obesity, and asthma), present major challenges to our world population. Global health is highly interdisciplinary in nature with legal, medical, economic, and social aspects and an evolving role for international law.
