About This Publication: 

The rule of law is vital to the response to noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). This Toolkit offers tools and resources that provide guidance on how the law can be used to curb NCDs and, potentially, to address other global health challenges. It aims to support the integration of legal approaches in the teaching of public health challenges through an interdisciplinary approach grounded in international human rights law. It addresses NCDs and regulatory and fiscal responses in three countries in East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

This Toolkit was developed through a participatory and consultative process, as a result of the multidisciplinary collaboration between academics from schools of law and schools of public health engaged in the East Africa Academic Working group, which was established under the Global Regulatory and Fiscal Capacity Building Programme 2019–2022 (Global RECAP).
