Global health and development

Research on global governance for health and development has usually addressed the governance of the global health system, namely actors whose primary intent is to improve global health, such as the WHO. Better understanding is needed on the many global level actors and forces outside the global health system and the ways in which they influence health. Political, economic and social globalisation have tightened the interdependence of sovereign states on global powers, forces and actors. Global governance processes outside the health sector, such as those relating to security, trade and investment, environment, work and labour, education, agriculture, and migration, increasingly affect health. New global players such as private firms, civil society organisations and charities wield significant influence. Innovative, transdisciplinary research is needed to identify and develop mechanisms to protect and promote health in these other global governance arenas. This work will also deepen our understanding of how health is connected to global human rights, which remain contested at the intersection of national and transnational regulatory forms.
