Global Health Governance

Global health governance has become a basis to realize a more just world through public health. Reflecting the institutions that structure global determinants of public health, global governance for health encompasses the range of intergovernmental organizations, funding agencies and international bureaucracies that underlie public health in a globalizing world.
