Update (04/14/23): This post was updated to reflect additional universities supporting the establishment of the association, including the University of Philippines College of Law, the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University School of Law, and the National Law School of India University.
The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, along with the Global Health Law Program at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Centre for International Law (CIL), the University of Philippines College of Law, the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University School of Law (NYCU Law), and the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), is supporting the establishment of the Asian Health Law Association, which focuses on connecting health law and policy experts, advocates, and practitioners across the Asia region.
The Asian Health Law Association will facilitate professional development and exchange of ideas, stimulate learning and networking among health lawyers, and would focus on matters of relevance for the Asia region. The association will also work towards advancement of national, regional, and global health law and policy education in Asia.
The association will include individuals working in the health law and policy space, who work in a variety of public or private sector work settings, including litigation and consulting firms, policy institutes, academic, in-house, and non-profit. The Asian Health Law Association invites suggestions on the names of institutions and individuals who should be invited to participate in laying the groundwork for the formation of this association.
