An Introduction to Global Health Delivery

Joia S. Mukherjee

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on governance, a key building block of a health system. A government is responsible for the health of its people. It sets the health strategy and oversees the implementation of health programs. External forces and actors influence the governance of the health sector. This chapter explores governance of health from the perspective of the nation-state coordinating its own health system (sometimes called governance for global health). The chapter examines the internal and external forces that influence national governance for global health. The chapter also looks beyond the level of the nation-state to explore the concept of global governance for health. In the interconnected and globalized world, global governance for health is needed to coordinate the geopolitical forces that impact health and its social determinants.

Keywords:   Governance, ministry of health, ministry of finance, PRSP, WHO, UNICEF, multilateral organizations, bilateral funding, public–private partnerships, global governance for health
