9780230209923: Making Sense of Global Health Governance: A Policy Perspective

The Millennium ushered in renewed interest and investment in global health, in part because of concerns that globalization would intensify the risks of ill-health. But are we taking advantage of emerging opportunities? This book shines a light on the central actors, institutions and mechanisms involved and proposes an agenda for meaningful action.

Review:

'Making Sense of Global Health Governance is an important contribution to a debate that is often poorly informed and bewildered by vested interest. Readers will find this an informative read and an excellent step forward in understanding the evolution and developments of a changing global health architecture.' - Julian Lob-Levyt, Executive Secretary and CEO, GAVI Alliance

'Making Sense of Global Health Governance attempts to unsnarl a rapidly changing global policy landscape. This volume is an important read for policy makers, practitioners and students of global health. Happily, Kent Buse and his colleagues have reached beyond the traditional staid discussions of this subject to cast light on the mosh pit of global health governance. The journey into this mildly anarchic vibrant area of inquiry (to the ungoing beat of globalization) will not disappoint.' - Ann Marie Kimball, Department of Health Services, University of Washington, USA

'In this provocative collection of essays, Kent Buse and colleagues take stock of how policy-makers across the globe are responding to the threats to public health posed by an ever-increasing flow of goods and people. True to its title, this unique collaboration between scholars and practitioners helps the reader understand the institutional structures, initiatives, decision-making processes, and rules of accountability that affect health outcomes, and examines whether or not these have been successful in securing public health. Its most valuable contribution is its recommendations for what could - and should - be done differently. Reflecting the views and expertise of a wide range of distinguised public health experts, policy-makers, and political and social scientists, it is a must-read for those responsible for formulating rules that affect public health, as well as for students and scholars thereof.' - Michel Sidibé, Executive Director, UNAIDS

'Making sense of the many players in global health is not a job for the faint hearted, given the ever more complicated funding arrangements, institutional missions, policies and personalities. The contributors to Making Sense of Global Health Governance do a great service for all of us who are involved in the field. Readers will be enlightened - and inspired to take on the important task of improving international agencies' responses to the health needs of poor people, getting more health and protection from risk for the money.' - Ruth Levine, Vice President, Centre for Global Development

'...a clear overview of research issues on global health governance...gives the reader a profound insight as to the important issues in global health.' - Global Health Governance
