Global Health and Human Rights Database

CHRS is a research partner with the Global Health and Human Rights Database, a free online database of law from around the world relating to health and human rights. It offers an interactive, searchable, and fully indexed website of case law, national constitutions and international instruments and is the first attempt to comprehensively make available health and human rights law from both common and civil law jurisdictions. The database is a joint initiative between the O’Neill Institute at Georgetown University and Lawyers Collective, an Indian NGO. This initiative was an attempt to expand and deepen the database. The Global Health and Human Rights Database worked with a student group from CHRS, supervised by faculty to (a) train the students in the basics of the right to health framework and (b) have the students assist in the research, summarization and processing of the cases which are then published to their website.
