This chapter reviews the role of bilateral development assistance in advancing health-related international human rights obligations by examining the evolution of efforts to coordinate bilateral development assistance agencies and the international public financing dimensions of their governance and goals. This chapter examines the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee (OECD-DAC) as an entry point for exploring: the evolution of international obligations for health-related rights, focusing on the right to health; the origins of the OECD-DAC and the parallel rise of national development assistance agencies; the factors that facilitated and/or inhibited a coordinated approach to human rights mainstreaming in bilateral development assistance agencies; and the emergence of the aid effectiveness agenda and the International Health Partnership Plus Related Initiatives. This chapter concludes by assessing upcoming challenges to coordinate bilateral development assistance for health.

Keywords:   right to health, health-related rights, coordination, bilateral development assistance, OECD, Overseas Development Assistance, Development Assistance for Health, aid effectiveness, International Health Partnership Plus
