Health Law

One of CHELD’s projects is to ensure that all Nigerian health and health-relevant law is made freely accessible online, since most are currently not available online.  The aim is to improve knowledge of our existing legislation, highlight the need for updating and revising some of our current legislation, and assist researchers and advocates in their work.  To this end, we provide access to health and health-relevant legislation. Please visit our  Legislation page.  For legislation on issues related to violence against women/gender-based violence in Nigeria, please look through this site and visit our Online Domestic Violence Resource Centre
