Implementing Public Health Regulations in Developing Countries: Lessons from OECD Countries

The Issue in Brief

The O’Neill Institute was commissioned by the World Bank to develop a white paper outlining public health law in OECD countries and strategies by which wealthy country public health law can be adapted for settings with few resources and minimal judicial oversight. The paper was submitted to the World Bank in June 2009 and will form the basis of their discussions around this topic.
