    The Proliferation of Human Rights in Global Health Governance.Lance Gable - 2007 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 35 (4):534-544.
    Human rights play an integral role in the global governance of health. Recently, both structural and normative aspects of human rights have proliferated across multiple levels and within multiple contexts around the world. Human rights proliferation is likely to have a positive impact on the governance of health because it can expand the avenues through which a human rights framework or human rights norms may be used to address and improve health.

    The Proliferation of Human Rights in Global Health Governance.Lance Gable - 2007 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 35 (4):534-544.
    As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, threats to global public health continue to proliferate. New and novel risks to health have emerged consistently over the past 30 years. Moreover, our shrinking world now allows health threats to spread more quickly than ever before. Given these realities, efforts to protect and improve global health must be expansive, flexible, and able to take into account the variety of circumstances that may imperil good health. These efforts also must consider the multiple levels and (...)

    The Role of State Law in Protecting Human Subjects of Public Health Research and Practice.Scott Burris, Lance Gable, Lesley Stone & Zita Lazzarini - 2003 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 31 (4):654-662.
    “Public health practice” consists of activities and Programs managed by public health agencies to promote health and prevent disease, injury, and disability. Some of these activities might be deemed to fit within the broad definition of “research” under federal regulations, known as the Common Rule, designed to protect human research subjects. The Common Rule defines research as “a systeniatic investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.” Public health activities that might under some (...)

    Learning From the Flint Water Crisis: Restoring and Improving Public Health Practice, Accountability, and Trust.Colleen Healy Boufides, Lance Gable & Peter D. Jacobson - 2019 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 47 (S2):23-26.
    The Flint water crisis demonstrates the importance of adequate legal preparedness in dealing with complicated legal arrangements and multiple statutory responsibilities. It also demonstrates the need for alternative accountability measures when public officials fail to protect the public's health and explores mechanisms for restoring community trust in governmental public health.

    Global Public Health Legal Responses to H1N.Lance Gable, Brooke Courtney, Robert Gatter & Eleanor D. Kinney - 2011 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 39 (s1):46-50.
    Pandemics challenge the law and often highlight its strengths or expose its limits. The novel strain of influenza A virus that emerged in the spring of 2009 and rapidly spread around the globe was no exception. The H1N1 pandemic prompted the first significant application of a number of international legal and policy mechanisms that have been developed in the last decade to respond to this kind of event. Furthermore, it presented a considerable test for public health systems at all levels, (...)

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Public Health, and the Elusive Target of Human Rights.Lance Gable - 2011 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 39 (3):340-354.
    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) sets in motion a wide range of programs that substantially affected the health system in the United States and signify a moderate but important regulatory shift in the role of the federal government in public health. This article briefly addresses two interesting policy paradoxes about the ACA. First, while the legislation primarily addresses health care financing and insurance and establishes only a few initiatives directly targeting public health, the ACA nevertheless has the (...)

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Public Health, and the Elusive Target of Human Rights.Lance Gable - 2011 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 39 (3):340-354.
    The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in March 2010 represents a significant turning point in the evolution of health care law and policy in the United States. By establishing a legal infrastructure that seeks to achieve universal health insurance coverage in the United States, the ACA targets some of the major impediments to accessing needed health care for millions of Americans and by extension attempts to strengthen the health system to support key determinants of health. Yet, (...)

    Emergency Preparedness and Response for Disabled Individuals: Implications of Recent Litigation.Lainie Rutkow, Holly A. Taylor & Lance Gable - 2015 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 43 (S1):91-94.
    In an emergency, challenges faced by disabled individuals may be exacerbated by ineffective communication, power outages, transportation shortcomings, and inhospitable shelters. During Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Gulf Coast shelters did not routinely provide closed captioning or sign language interpreters; for individuals with auditory disabilities, understanding instructions issued in these shelters was extremely difficult. Individuals with mobility-related disabilities experienced challenges evacuating from their homes due to public transportation that could not accommodate wheelchairs. After the hurricanes, difficulties arose in identifying wheelchair-accessible trailers (...)

    Protecting the Mental Health of First Responders: Legal and Ethical Considerations.Lainie Rutkow, Lance Gable & Jonathan M. Links - 2011 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 39 (s1):56-59.
    The public safety, human services, health, and relief workers who comprise the first wave of a response to natural or man-made disasters play a critical role in emergency preparedness. These first responders provide care and services in the immediate aftermath of emergencies and may remain in affected communities for weeks or months. They often work long hours under stressful conditions, witnessing the human harms, physical destruction, and psychological devastation that can accompany disasters.
