After completion of one full-time semester or up to three part-time semesters at Georgetown, students will complete the program with a full-time spring semester at the Graduate Institute.
Globalization of Health Laws and Policies
Health laws and policies are increasingly transnational in the modern era. Trade, commerce, travel, environment, war, and terrorism transcend boundaries and profoundly impact individual and communal health. Protecting the public's health and improving individual health outcomes increasingly involves national and international innovation and collaboration through legal systems. International institutions such as the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, the World Trade Organization, and the International Labor Organization play an important role in global health governance and in the development of global health law and policy. A comprehensive approach to global health law involves multiple, interrelated fields including health, trade, economics, intellectual property, human rights, ethics, and national security.
