1 - 2 weeks availability


Over the last ten years, the financing and diversity of new players in the health industry have increased significantly. This provides both opportunities and challenges for health diplomacy to coordinate new partnerships and focus collectively on the results and impact on health. This edited volume defines and presents the range of innovative partnerships (including Global Health Initiatives, Private Foundations, Public/Private Partnerships, and the role of Civil Society) which are now near the heart of health diplomacy. It also describes the steps and negotiations used to integrate new players into development at the global level - including the implementation of the new principles of aid effectiveness (as negotiated in the Paris Agenda and recent Accra Action Agenda). Lastly, the volume provides case studies at the country and community level to describe the diplomacy of including new health partnerships on the ground. The chapters represent unique and concrete perspectives on these issues - from activists, private sector, country ministers of health, district health workers and multilaterals, including those working in these partnerships - from the global level right down to the community level. This volume begins and concludes with important chapters on key themes and how the challenges and diversity of new actors can be incorporated to best improve global health.
