Pandemics - Public Health Research Guide

This guide focuses on the law related to efforts in preventing, detecting and containiing pandemics on the international, regional and national level.

Introduction

Global pandemics do not respect national boundaries and there could be simultaneous outbreaks in different parts of the world. Co-ordination of preparedness and response at the international, regional, and national level is therefore essential.

This research guide focuses on the law related to the efforts in preventing, detecting and containing pandemics on the international, regional and national level (focusing on the United States).
