    Neil Sircar, J.D., LL.M
    Neil is a human rights lawyer specializing in global and public health, global governance, and health in humanitarian crises. He recently concluded a Fogarty Global Health Fellowship with the National Institutes for Health through the Northern Pacific Global Health Consortium at the University of Washington. He is principal investigator on a study for assessing the implementation of human rights-based approaches to HIV testing and notification in Kenya with the prominent Kenyan non-governmental organization Kenya Legal and Ethical Issues Network. His research focus is in further developing the legal dimensions to global health and in particular human rights-based approaches to health. With the UCSF Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education Neil intends to further explore rights-based approaches to international tobacco control with respect to laws, policies, practices, and litigation.

    Neil’s previous experience includes working with major national and international health organizations, including the Global Health Security Agenda, USAID, and WHO-Western Pacific Regional Office. He has several published articles analyzing a range of public health subjects and has contributed to parallel or “shadow” reports regarding human rights, public health, tobacco control and other non-communicable disease concerns in Argentina. He is a graduate from Georgetown University Law Center and the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.
