New reference tool: Global Health and Human Rights Database
The Global Health and Human Rights Database, formally launched on October 24, 2013, is a fully searchable online database of more than 1000 judgments, constitutions and international instruments on the intersection between health and human rights. The database was developed by Lawyers Collective and the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University, in collaboration with more than 100 partners from civil society, academia, and legal practice worldwide.
The Database is the first attempt to comprehensively make available 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. It also provides 500 plain-language summaries and 200 original translations of case law previously unavailable in English.
