Groningen Centre for Health Law
Health law is multidisciplinary - cutting across international, regional and domestic law, and resting on insights from (health) science. The Groningen Center for Health Law (GCHL) engages with global and domestic health law, with a particular emphasis on the role of human rights. Taking the right to health as a starting point, our research and teaching address healthcare settings as well as health prevention and promotion. Broader research themes include health inequalities, disease prevention, vulnerability in healthcare settings, as well as reproductive, mental and environmental health. We foster PhD research in these areas and we offer courses in health law at LLM level (Dutch and English); a yearly summer school; as well as at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).
