Over the last ten years, the financing and diversity of new players in global health have increased significantly. Ten years ago it would have been difficult to predict some of these changes - Bill Gates programming global health rather than software; NGOs formally governing a US$20 billion health fund; WHO convening a range of partnerships; financial markets launching bonds to support vaccines. This volume assesses the range of innovative partnerships which are now near the heart of health diplomacy. It then describes the negotiations to integrate new players into development, which has changed health governance at global and country level. The chapters represent unique and concrete perspectives on these issues - from activists, private sector, country ministers of health, district health workers, multilaterals and those working in these partnerships - from the global right down to the community level.

Partnerships are fashionable, but the conditions that bring about their success or failure are elusive. Daniel Low - Beer has brought together experts from public health, civil society, and policymaking to investigate how partnerships work, what they have delivered, and what lessons one can learn from their experiences. -- Richard Horton "Editor-in-Chief of the Lancet"
This volume is a highly valuable contribution to the current discourse on global health and development aid effectiveness. It takes stock of lessons learned by different countries and innovative partnership strategies. I -- TedrosGhebreyesus "Minister of Health, Ethiopia"
This book captures the innovative and challenging period of health partnerships since 2000 and in the process illuminates some of the key issues in the debate on aid effectiveness and aid architecture today. The range and quality of contributors provide compelling material on the diversity of actors and instruments now in play in international development efforts in the field of health, with a good balance between overarching issues and global partnerships, and the negotiation of diversity in real country contexts. -- Richard Carey "Former Director for Development Co-operation, OECD-DAC"
