The Policy Surveillance Program

02.2019 / By LawAtlas

This program facilitates use of policy surveillance and legal mapping as tools for improving the nation’s health. More and more, researchers, policy-makers, public health practitioners and the media are recognizing the need for access to reliable information about laws and policies that influence the public’s health.

Legal mapping can help policy-makers, advocates and researchers understand what the laws are on a given topic, know how the laws differ over time and across jurisdictions, and provides data so they may evaluate their impact.
