The Transformation of Global Health Governance: Competing Ideas, Interests and Institutions

by Adam Kamradt-Scott, Colin McInnes, Kelley Lee

Palgrave Macmillan | April 29, 2014 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review
The authors examine how health governance is being transformed amid globalization, characterized by the emergence of new actors and institutions, and the interplay of competing ideas about global health. They explore how this has affected the governance of specific health issues, such as HIV/AIDS, pandemic influenza, tobacco control and access to medicines, and how it relates to global governance more broadly. Adopting a multi-layer perspective on global health governance, the authors suggest how global health governance might move forward more effectively.
