This research review highlights and discusses some of the most significant contributions to the study of global health law. Global health law is a recent field of research in its own right and encompasses the relatively narrow core of international rules and institutions devoted to health protection and promotion as well as the complex interactions between health and multiple areas of international law. By bringing such diverse perspectives into a single narrative, this review is an important resource for scholars and practitioners both in public health as well as in legal and policy fields such as trade and investment, human rights and the environment.
