Reviews

Global Health Law brings attention to critical aspects of law that anyone interested in global health needs to be concerned about: the major sources of law, and the institutions relevant to implementing them...Gostin posits that the solution to major global health challenges lies in transforming global health law and global governance because of their potential to dramatically improve health and reduce inequalities.--Sofia Gruskin"The Lancet" (09/13/2014)
Gostin here presents a persuasive and inspiring call to action for lawyers and legal scholars to harness their talents to the fundamental goal of health for all by utilizing human rights standards, international treaties and activist litigation...Global Health Law makes a compelling case that the law's time in the march towards global health is nigh.--Juliet S. Sorensen"Times Higher Education" (07/24/2014)
Larry Gostin's Global Health Law is more than the definitive book on a dynamic field. Gostin harnesses the power of international law and human rights as tools to close unconscionable health inequities--the injustices that burden marginalized populations throughout the world. Gostin presents a forceful vision, one that deserves a wide embrace.--Paul Farmer
The fight against apartheid in South Africa inspired a Constitution that guarantees everyone the right to health. Lawrence Gostin's groundbreaking Global Health Law replicates that struggle globally, employing wider principles of social justice and international law. His book is rich in scholarship, and inspiring in its generous-spirited reach.--Justice Edwin Cameron, Constitutional Court of South Africa
The fusion of human rights and social movements is a powerful theme running throughout Lawrence Gostin's absorbing book. Global Health Law shines a light on the inspiration of the AIDS movement, bringing the ingenuity of civil society to achieve health justice for all.--Michele Sidib , Executive Director of UNAIDS
