Medicine and Law

The Official Journal of the World Association for Medical Law

Volume 39, Issue No. 2

We are pleased to offer a special COVID-19 issue of Medicine and Law FREE to our HeinOnline community. The Hein Company and the World Association for Medical Law recognize that this unprecedented crisis has greatly affected everyone, and we are compelled to provide credible information and resources.

About the Issue: The COVID-19 Pandemic

The cancellation of the 2020 World Congress on Medical Law resulted in the June issue of Medicine and Law becoming a time capsule which contemporaneously reviewed the first six months of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Within that timeframe, the journal was able to secure 17 reports from different countries and jurisdictions which, with the exception of a single report, were independently refereed and critically edited.

This overview should serve as a useful tool for those in authority, guiding individual responses to the pandemic, around the world. It is a timely and constructive compilation that offers a broad spectrum of approaches. As COVID-19 has changed the world, it is anticipated there will be a greater emphasis on technological advances; telemedicine; individual responsibility; hygiene; interpersonal relationships; and international exchanges.

As with other viral infections such as the seasonal flu, the pandemic has shown that those most at risk from COVID-19 are the elderly, the immuno-compromised, and those with underlying health conditions. We’ve seen that the spread of future pandemics may be slowed generally by respect for national borders and specifically, especially for the most vulnerable, by social isolation. As a collective, this issue of Medicine and Law aims to contribute to how the world deals with the present and future pandemics.
