This chapter applies two approaches to global economic governance of relevance to global health funding agencies. The first is the human rights-based approach to development, with its theoretical grounding in social justice and capabilities and with its practical applications in agencies engaged in development assistance and financing of health interventions, with particular relevance to the 2030 Development Agenda. The second approach is that of the right to development, as clarified in terms of policy, process, and outcomes, and as applied to the three funding programs that direct resources to global health issues. The chapter concludes that the mainstreaming of the human rights-based approach to development has been integrated into practice—albeit on a modest scale—more than the right to development, due primarily to a lack of incentives, notwithstanding the potential of both approaches to inflect global governance institutions in ways that advance human rights for global health.
