While health has long been central to the sustainable development agenda, academics and scholars are only just beginning to analyse the relevance of international health law to sustainable development law. This work requires a great deal of future development, and this chapter simply presents a starting point, the identification of a future legal research agenda. Such an agenda seeks to encourage public health practitioners and international legal specialists to consider health law from a genuinely global perspective. This chapter argues that the future legal research agenda in health law and sustainable development will focus on intersections between health regimes and others. To provide a flavour of recent debates, the chapter surveys recent trends in international health law, examining certain selected areas of law in more detail.

Keywords:   sustainable development, international health law, health regimes, public health practitioners, international legal specialists
