Welcome to the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law’s blog. The blog is meant as a forum for thoughtful dialogue on pressing issues in health law and policy. It will also be an additional venue for us to keep in touch with our friends and colleagues on current events at the O’Neill Institute, including highlights from our robust research program, graduate degree program, fellowship program, and institute scholarship.
Launched in 2007, the O’Neill Institute at Georgetown University has blossomed into the premier academic research center for national and global health law and policy. Our research encompasses a diverse range of national and global health law topics, from health reform in the US and China, tobacco control globally and in Latin America, global infectious and non-communicable disease prevention, and global health governance. The UN Secretary General recently endorsed the founding vision of the O’Neill Institute—a Framework Convention on Global Health.
We hope that the blog helps us keep in touch with old friends, connects us with new colleagues and partners, and serves as a resource for our readers. Sign up for an RSS feed and check back often.
Thank you for your support of the O’Neill Institute and best wishes.
