Global Governance for Health
The diverse challenges posed by global change
for health raises the need to rethink existing forms of governance.
Domestic action alone is no longer sufficient to ensure health is
protected. Our research has helped to clarify how existing rules,
institutional actors, and financing mechanisms need to evolve to
better respond to the emerging challenges of globalisation. Our
work is especially concerned with ensuring that globalisation also
benefits those currently left behind in the development process.
transformation of global health governance: Competing world views
and crises. This 4-year project, funded by the European
Research Council, is a collaboration between the London School
of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (Kelley Lee as Co-PI) and the

to 2.3 million Euros.
