Global Health Law Consortium Authors Editorial in Bulletin of the World Health Organization

GHLC editorial WHO Bulletin March 2022

This month’s Bulletin of the World Health Organization features an editorial authored by members of the Global Health Law Consortium (GHLC) including GSL Director Dr. Steven Hoffman Link  and Research Fellow Roojin Habibi.

The editorial titled, Travel restrictions and variants of concern: global health laws need to reflect evidence, provides commentary on how the usage of targeted travel bans, against WHO public health recommendations, undermined International Health Regulations, 2005 revision; IHR (2005) and caused undue hardship for targeted countries and regions. The authors call for governments to refrain from implementing discriminatory travel restrictions based on domestic political imperatives and for global health law to ensure international legal obligations reflect evolving public health evidence.
