Joint Action and Learning Initiative for National and Global Responsibilities for Health

The Joint Action and Learning Initiative on National and Global Responsibilities for Health (JALI) has been formed to investigate and forge consensus around answers to fundamental questions about countries' responsibilities to improve the health of their own populations and the health of the world's population, especially disadvantaged individuals and communities. JALI's central goal is to have these responsibilities, and governance structures that can effectively realize these responsibilities, form the basis of the post-Millennium Development Goals global health framework, possibly through a Framework Convention on Global Health. These responsibilities and governance structures should be grounded in human rights. JALI is a broad, inclusive, and Southern-led partnership.

The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University was established in 2007 through the generous philanthropy of Linda and Timothy O’Neill to respond to the need for innovative solutions to the most pressing national and international health concerns. Housed at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington D.C., the O’Neill Institute reflects the importance of public and private law in health policy analysis. The O’Neill Institute draws upon the University's considerable intellectual resources, including the School of Nursing & Health Studies, School of Medicine, the Public Policy Institute, and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.
