This conference is being presented by Sydney Law School's Centre for Health Governance, Law and Ethics in cooperation with the Sydney Medical School's Centre for Values, Ethics & Law in Medicine.


The most pressing challenges for health are not confined within national borders. The global spread of infectious diseases, the rising burden of non-communicable diseases, and the growing trend in health tourism all present important and novel challenges for the global community.

With papers addressing health and human rights, gene patenting, communicable and non-communicable diseases, health tourism, surrogacy and cross border reproduction, and the global regulation of therapeutics, this interdisciplinary conference will explore the role for law in supporting and promoting global health. A particular focus of the conference will be the consideration of practical opportunities and challenges in responding to issues in global health

This conference will be relevant to all those with an interest in global health, health law, public health, and human rights including students, lawyers, health professionals, academics, and the public.
