Over the last ten years, the financing and diversity of new players in global health have increased significantly. Ten years ago it would have been difficult to predict some of these changes - Bill Gates programming global health rather than software; NGOs formally governing a US$20 billion health fund; WHO convening a range of partnerships; financial markets launching bonds to support vaccines. This volume assesses the range of innovative partnerships which are now near the heart of health diplomacy. It then describes the negotiations to integrate new players into development, which has changed health governance at global and country level. The chapters represent unique and concrete perspectives on these issues - from activists, private sector, country ministers of health, district health workers, multilaterals and those working in these partnerships - from the global right down to the community level.
