International Considerations

International Considerations

Law in Public Health Practice

David P. Fidler

Martin S. Cetron

Oxford University Press

This chapter seeks to remedy the neglect of international considerations in the analysis of U.S. public health law. The first section focuses on the legal structure and sources of public health law viewed from an international perspective. It then reviews U.S. participation in international health diplomacy. The next two sections address the law relevant to public health problems that U.S. public health officials and practitioners may face: public health threats that originate outside the United States but come into the United States through people, animals, or goods and flow out of the United States toward other countries. The chapter also addresses public health controversies that result from the U.S. pursuit of liberalization in international trade and foreign investment through international law. It concludes with thoughts on the future importance of international considerations in U.S. public health law.
