Brigit Toebes conducts research related to both human rights and health. At present she is working on drawing up and defining international health law, a new field in international law. She recently founded Global Health Law Groningen
. One of Toebes’s aims is to improve health legislation in developing countries.
Toebes: 'Take the fairly strong tobacco legislation. Many countries don't have this. So what you see is that the tobacco industry is searching for new markets, developing and middle-income countries. Such countries are less well-equipped to control the tobacco industry. The result is that smoking increases, and thus related chronic diseases too. That's really quite a tragedy.'
