Global Health Law Research: WWW Resources

"Hard" and "Soft" Law Instruments

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the world's most prominent health-related IGO.  The WHO plays a major role in the promulgation of global health law agreements--both "hard" (binding) and "soft" (non-binding).  These agreements are listed below. Non-WTO health-related agreements can be identified via the United Nations Treaty Collection site (keyword and subject searches). See also under "Basic Documents-Treaties of  International Health Law" in the 2010 GlobaLex piece "Research Guide on International Health Law."
