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.

Rules for the Road: Global Health, Safety and Security for Deploying Students, Staff, and Clinicians Overseas

Global health work and training in underserved areas presents unique opportunities to serve and to learn, but also increases exposure to safety risks. The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the Nepal earthquake, and the current refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East highlights the need for a strong focus on the health, safety, and security of those working and training globally.

The Global Surgery Deficit

Approximately 5 billion out of 7 billion people in the world have no or little access to basic surgical care. Out of the roughly 250 million operations performed each year, only 3.5% are performed on the poorest 1/3 of the world's population. Injuries alone cause 5.7 million deaths yearly, much more than the 3.8 million deaths caused by malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis combined.
