The Hamline University Health Law Institute is pleased to present its National Speaker Series featuring Lawrence O. Gostin, Linda D. and Timothy J. O’Neill Professor of Global Health Law & Georgetown Law Faculty Director, Center for Law and the Public’s Health in, "Global Health Justice: Towards a Framework Convention on Global Health."

The international community is deeply resistant to taking bold remedial action to reduce unconscionable inequalities in health between the rich and poor -- more concerned with their geostrategic interests than the health of the poor. The scale of foreign aid is both insufficient and unsustainable and fails to address the key determinants of health. As a result, the world’s distribution of the “good” of human health remains fundamentally unfair, causing enormous physical and mental suffering by those who experience the compounding disadvantages of poverty and ill health. This lecture proposes a bold global governance strategy to make dramatic improvements in human health— a Framework Convention on Global Health.

Presentation: 5 p.m. at Hamline University School of Law, East Hall 106
Reception: 6 p.m. Hamline University School of Law Atrium
