Lancet Article Offers Recommendations For Reforms To ‘Global Health Law Trilogy’

The Lancet: The global health law trilogy: towards a safer, healthier, and fairer world
Lawrence O. Gostin, professor and faculty director of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University; Mary Clare DeBartolo, associate at the O’Neill Institute; and Rebecca Katz, associate professor and co-director of the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University, discuss how law can be an important tool in global health policy. The authors write, “The Lancet-O’Neill Institute, Georgetown University Commission on Global Health and the Law aims to demonstrate the power of law to achieve global health with justice. Here, as a prelude to the Commission’s full report, we examine and offer reforms for this global health law trilogy[, including the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), International Health Regulations (IHR), and the Pandemic Influenza Preparedness (PIP) Framework.] New governance strategies would assure the instruments’ success, providing an essential roadmap for the new WHO director general” (5/15).
