Soft Law and Global Health Problems
We are pleased to announce that Dr Sharifah Sekalala’s new book will be released on the 24th November 2017.
Millions of people in developing countries struggle to gain access to essential life-saving medicines for global epidemics such as AIDS and malaria. ‘Soft Law and Global Health Problems’ examines the different legal approaches that have been taken internationally to improve global access to essential medicines.
Using compelling case studies, Dr Sekalala explores law making on global health and analyses the viability of current global health financing trends within new and traditional organisation such as the United Nations and the World Health Organisation.
Dr Sharifah Sekalala holds a PhD in Law (Warwick, 2012), an LLM in Public International Law (Distinction in research, Nottingham 2006), and LLB Honours (Makerere University, Uganda, 2004). Her research focuses on the intersection of global health law with international law and she has published widely on these issues in leading peer-reviewed journals.
