On June 26th, 2018, the University of Chicago Center in Beijing along with the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and the Health Governance Initiative (HGI) , a Beijing-Based think tank focuses on health law and policy, hosted the “Infectious Disease Law and Policy Forum.” The forum, which brought together 19 experts from different universities; national and international health organizations; NGOs; and media corporations, sought to answer the question of how we can utilize law and policy regarding infectious disease to promote social justice.  Jonathan Lio, an organizer of the conference and professor at the University of Chicago, built on this further by saying that he wants to create “[A society] where everyone has equal access to education, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Where our most vulnerable are protected and respected while we move towards eradicating infectious disease.”
