The Global Health and Human Rights Database is a free online database of law from around the world relating to health and human rights. Developed by the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University and the Lawyers Collective – in collaboration with a worldwide network of partners—including NGOs, academics and private researchers—the database offers an interactive, searchable, and fully indexed website of case law, national constitutions and international instruments.
The database became publicly available in March 2013 and was formally launched on October 24, 2013, with a celebratory event held at UN Headquarters during the 68th session of the UN General Assembly, that brought together speakers working across a number of sectors. More information about the database and the launch event can be found here.
