Webinar: Global Health and Law

For many global health practitioners, the link between the law and global health is not clear. However, upon closer look, much of the framework for how global health is conceived and practiced is grounded in the laws, regulations and guidance that emanate from global organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the United Nations. Human rights laws that create the right to health, regulations that come into play during a pandemic, international guidance relating to breast milk substitutes, international pharmaceutical regulation, etc.
