Increasingly globalization has meant that decisions made regarding medical care and health in one country may influence health and disease outcomes in other parts of the world.

Recognizing that medical law should not be confined to national silos this handbook approaches medical law and ethics from a global perspective. Whilst respecting and analyzing national developments the chapters take a concerted international approach, looking comparatively at developments within each area.

The book brings together leading scholars from both medical law and ethics backgrounds who have contributed specially commissioned pieces in order to present a critical overview and analysis of the current state of the field. The Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of longstanding and traditional topics in medical law and ethics, as well as providing dynamic insights into contemporary and emerging issues in this heavily debated field.

Topics covered include: "Human-animal" medicine and medical research Public Health Access to resources and medicines Traditional, complementary and alternative medicines Regenerative Medicine This advanced level reference work will prove invaluable to scholars, students and researchers in the disciplines of law, medicine, dentistry, nursing, ethics and theology.
