Global Health Governance and Stakeholder Participation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter analyses the rule of stakeholder participation in major global health institutions including the World Bank, the World Health Organization, GAVI, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In recent decades, there has been a dramatic shift from models based on transparency and observer status for non-state actors to speaking rights, voting rights, and even potential veto rights for different stakeholders within global health institutions. The conceptualization of participation within global health institutions has also shifted from a focus on individual stakeholders often selected by the institution itself to broader constituencies of stakeholders who select their own representatives.
