Lawyers Collective and the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University in Washington DC have recently launched The Global Health and Human Rights Database (www.globalhealthrights.org). This database is an interactive, searchable, and fully indexed website of more than 1000 judgment, case law, national constitutions, and international instruments, as well as their translations and summaries. It covers health and human rights law from both common and civil law jurisdictions, and features case law and other legal documents from more than 80 countries and in 25 languages. As practitioners and scholars analyze legal strategies, this database can serve as a starting point for research and practice.
